The Procedure

by Harry Mulisch

Rabbi Jehudah Loew in sixteenth century Prague and twentieth century internationalist, Victor Werker, both succeed in creating life from clay and both have to deal with the problems that success brings. This remarkable book handles huge themes with a great deal of wit as well as sympathy.

Extract

Most people have never achieved anything great and yet they simply do their work; isn't it absurd that having achieved something great leads to more discontent than not having having achieved anything great. But perhaps the greatest achievement is always in the distance, perhaps the ultimate achievement is dying.
Translated by Paul Vincent
