[San Francisco Book Review]
This book is well-written, though the deviations into scripture and about Judith could have been articulated more succinctly. It’s a book that begins slowly, but readers who stick with it will be pleasantly surprised. Zev is a believable, interesting character, and while the conversations about God might be a little much for the less devout, it’s a well-constructed story.
[The Jewish Weekly – The Overlooked List]
Ten books from 2014 that didn’t get the attention they deserved
by Sandee Brawarsky, Culture Editor
A New York City story, “The Book of Zev” by Marilyn Ida Horowitz (Koehlerbooks) is a lively dark comedy and mystery featuring an earnest dropout from religious life who becomes a taxi driver (the title character, Zev), and a divorced kosher chef named Sarah who is angry at God and favors yoga and red wine. These two get entwined in an international terrorist plot and with each other. The author, who teaches screenwriting at NYU, creates characters on the borders of Jewish life with uncommon abilities to predict the future, all the while grappling with questions of faith and purpose.

[Fire Island Sun]
The inspiration for this book came upon a meeting with a man on a train who was a religious Jew questioning his faith. That conversation is what inspired the book and the title character of Zev. The events of the story made it into a thriller. It’s a black comedy because one of the themes is the absurdity of life.
