The Chosen Author:Chaim Potok Ten months on the New York Times Bestseller List! — The book the whole country is falling in love with... It makes you want to cry, to laugh, to exult... It is an "occasion for singing in the streets and shouting from the rooftops."* — "So entertaining, so full of love and compassion that readers of all persuasions will take it to their hearts. M... more »r. Potok is writing about two fathers and their sons... in a way that will ring just as true in Iowa as in Brooklyn."
"It makes you want to buttonhole strangers in the street to be certain they know it's around... It revives my sometimes fading belief in humanity. Works of this caliber should be occasion for singing in the streets and shouting from the rooftops."
-*Robert Cromie, Chicago Tribune
"We rejoice, and even weep a little... While Reuven talks we listen because of the story he has to tell, and long afterwards it remains in the mind and delights."
-Hugh Nissenson, The New York Times Book Review
"Anyone who finds it is finding a jewel. Its themes are profound and universal... We are much moved by The Chosen. It will stay on our bookshelves and be read again."
