Winner of the 1999 Jerusalem Prize for Literature The angel Adiel is chosen to witness the tragedies of the ten generations of man.
"After what I had witnessed, I reflected that I might have been his friend, if only I could have been revealed to him and spoken with him. We could have been like brothers. But the Lord had created the world as He created it. Adam will dream of angels and angels will lust for Adam, and the Lord will divide them."
