The Way Back by Gavriel Savit
If the world of the living were a suit of clothes and the world of the dead the bony flesh beneath, then at each elbow there would be a cemetery gate.
Here the dead rub up against the living world. Here the living world wears thin. Yehuda Leib and Bluma have separate, unexpected meetings with The Dark One- Death. Meetings which push them on journeys far from their homes across the Far Country – the world of the dead . . .
Literary fantasy steeped in Jewish folk lore and tradition, The Way Back is perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman.
