With Green Benjamin Zucker continues the challenge and the story of Abraham Tal, New York gem merchant and advice-giver to friends and neighbors in Greenwich Village.And continuing, too, is the involving rich world of prismatic color Tal inhabits. His life may be outwardly unexceptional, but he has inherited of world of voices jostling one another for their say, their Talmudic commentary on the action. Borges, Breton, Monet, Melville, Elihu Yale, Shah Jahan, Jewish mystics, many others -- all will be heard, emphatically, insistently, across the ages -- crowding into Tals advice shop on Hudson Street with news, with reports, with something important to say to Tal, and to us.Each page of text is, once again, complemented by art -- a color photograph, a painting, an illustration -- that provides additional levels to the story. The result is a multifaceted novel that can be both read and re-experienced in an expanding variety of ways.
