More Information

They are not so much meditations as obsessions, urgent enquiries into a frustrating but endlessly captivating mystery…Moods is not only about something, but that it is something vigorous and alive.

—Mona Gainer-Salim, Music & Literature

Hoffmann’s subject is the miracle of this most ordinary thing, and his prose is its revelation and praise.

—Jenny Hendrix, Forward

Spectacular.

The New Yorker

I am confirmed in my admiration for Hoffmann’s oblique and elliptical style.

—W. G. Sebald

Hoffmann writes in a language of miracles.

American Book Review

Hoffmann’s is an exile literature in exile from itself: self-conscious, and humorously historicized, yet with none of its homage preserved obviously. In his pages, the oldest of folkish tropes are wryly revivified into a third literature, that of a new and Third East–an undiscovered continent of exotically compelling fictions.

—Joshua Cohen

Hoffmann is not just a good writer but a great one, with the ability to find, in the moment-to-moment dislocation of daily existence, epiphanies of revelatory force… What Hoffmann has achieved is a kind of magic.

The Chicago Tribune

Hoffmann is not just a good author, but a great one, with the ability to find, in the moment-to-moment dislocation of everyday existence, epiphanies of revelatory force.

—David Ulin, The Washington Post

One of Isreal’s finest contemporary writers.

Kirkus Reviews

Cryptic, mysterious even, lovely. Welcome to the novel that reads like poetry.
