9780857861382: The Instructions

Beginning with a chance encounter with the beautiful Eliza June Watermark and ending, four days and 900 pages later, with the Events of November 17, this is the story of Gurion Maccabee, age ten: a lover, a fighter, a scholar, and a truly spectacular talker. Ejected from three Jewish day schools for acts of violence and messianic tendencies, Gurion ends up in the Cage, a special lockdown program for the most hopeless cases of Aptakisic Junior High. Separated from his scholarly followers, Gurion becomes a leader of a very different sort, with righteous aims building to a revolution of troubling intensity.

The Instructions is an absolutely singular work of fiction by an important new talent. Adam Levin has shaped a world driven equally by moral fervor and slapstick comedy—a novel that is muscular and verbose, troubling and empathetic, monumental, breakneck, romantic, and unforgettable.

About the Author:

Adam Levin's stories have appeared in Tin House, McSweeney's, and Esquire. Winner of the 2003 Tin House/Summer Literary Seminars Fiction Contest and the 2004 Joyce Carol Oates Fiction Prize, Levin holds an MA in Clinical Social Work from the University of Chicago and an MFA in Creative Writing from Syracuse University. His collection of short stories, Hot Pink, will be published by McSweeney's in 2011. He lives in Chicago, where he teaches writing at Columbia College and The School of the Art Institute. He also has a parrot.

Review:

"Young Adam Levin wowed me with this whip-smart, aching, hilarious novel, starring his own kind of post-modern wise child (a la Seymour Glass) and revolutionary. The ghost of DF Wallace would relish comparisons to this brave new talent. This year's best debut by a country mile."
Mary Karr

"Evocative of David Foster Wallace full of death-defying sentences, manic wit, exciting provocations and simple human warmth."
Julia Holmes, Rolling Stone

"A hysterical, heartfelt journey of self-discovery A book that moves beyond completely transparent influences to reach its own distinct, new, great height."
Foster Kamer, Village Voice

"This is a life-consuming novel, one that demands to be read feverishly. When it is over, other fiction feels insufficient, the newspaper seems irrelevant. If the ultimate message of modernism was unremitting pessimism The Instructions has given the literary genre its long deferred conclusion: Indeed, a day or four can serve as a reminder that death looms large for anything living, but there is lot of life to be lived in the interim."
Michael H. Miller, New York Observer

"After The Instructions challenges, charms and betrays you, it might just seduce your soul. The Instructions is disturbing and romantic and ultimately, heartbreaking, and its questions are not easily parsed, even by Gurion's analytic mind. They are the nagging doubts of our own goodness and faith. But it's worth sticking with this author's debut: This is a wunderkind's master class. An incredible creation of fiction."
Katie Moulton, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"A megapage masterpiece."
Geoffrey Johnson, Chicago magazine

"Levin’s mammoth, riotous, Talmudic, impossibly excessive yet brilliant, mesmerizing, warmhearted, and hilarious work of chutzpah takes place over four feverish days but encompasses the whole of Israel’s battle for existence and the Jewish quest for home and peace."
Donna Seaman, Booklist

"The Instructions is in fact a vital work of no getting around it American Jewish literature because it imagines that the genre is indeed through and asks what can be written in its place."
Marissa Brostoff, Tablet magazine

"Manic energy, ambition, erudition, interpolation of documents and sheer bulk."
Elaine Rewolinski, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"One of the year's most engrossing novels. His voice will haunt you long after you close the book."
Largehearted Boy
