Summary
Death is merely the beginning of Chaim Skibelski's troubles. He is shot along with the other Jews of his small Polish village. But instead of resting peacefully in the World to Come, Chaim, for reasons unclear to him, is left to wander the earth, accompanied by his rabbi, who has taken the form of a talking crow. Chaim's afterlife journey is filled with extraordinary encounters whose consequences are far greater than he realizes
Summary
A magic-realism tale on an executed Polish Jew in World War II whose spirit rises from a mass grave and goes wandering. He has a conversation with the severed head of the soldier who shot him and meets the village rabbi, now a crow, who asks him to lead the others in the grave to safety
