Eternal life - Dara Horn

Staff Pick

My best friend and I have a long-standing argument about living forever. He’s pro; I’m con. What happens, I keep saying, if I run out of will to live, but can’t die? Conveniently, Dara Horn wrote a novel to answer that question for me. Rachel, the protagonist of Eternal Life, can’t die. She vowed to live forever in the days of the Second Temple, and now it’s been millennia, the Temple is the Wailing Wall, and Rachel, who lives in New York, would prefer to be dead. The story is as oddball as it sounds, and as tragic; it’s a tour of Jewish history and the human heart at once. It even has a happyish ending—but not too happy, thank God. I’m confident it will help me win my argument.
