More About The Lion of Boaz-Jachin and Jachin-Boaz by Russell Hoban
 
 
 
Overview
Jachin-Boaz is a maker and seller of maps. In his shop are maps that will lead you to whatever it is you most desire: love, inspiration, wealth. But his greatest achievement is a master-map showing the location of everything that has ever been found in the world, which he intends to give to his son, Boaz-Jachin. There is only one thing missing from the map: lions - for there are no more lions left. Or are there? When Jachin-Boaz sets out on a quest to find a lion for his son, Boaz-Jachin will follow in search of his father, and both will discover something wholly unexpected ...
Russell Hoban's first novel for adults, "The Lion of Boaz-Jachin and Jachin-Boaz" (1973) was widely acclaimed by critics and earned comparisons to Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Both a humorous and light-hearted fantasy and an insightful meditation on the sometimes difficult relationships between fathers and sons, it is a perfect introduction to the work of this brilliant writer.
'A piece of invention as original as any of Tolkien's or C.S. Lewis's.' - "New Statesman"
'Magic at work ... Funny as well as beautiful.' - "Irish Times"
'Mr. Hoban is unclassifiable, thank goodness. His narrative is so minutely and compellingly realistic that after a time you cease to notice that he has stood reality on its head.' - "Sunday Times"
'Of outstanding quality ... unusually vivid imagination ... immensely striking use of words.' - Auberon Waugh, "The Spectator"
