Product description


"The Language God Talks is a seminal read. In this book there is a true to life drama: It is Wouk himself, torn between two worlds, and reconciling them both."--Lee Chottiner, The Jewish Chronicle

"The Language God Talks is simply and wonderfully an old and gifted writer's fascinating look back on a world that, for 94 years, he has called home."--Seed Magazine

"A kind of compact philosophical autobiography and a unique opportunity for readers to glimpse the innermost musings and intimate experiences that prepared Wouk for the many books that he has bestowed upon us."--The Jewish Journal

"A short, satisfying read. Wouk's writing is so captivating, still as elegant as ever. It demonstrates that Wouk hasn't lost a whit of his storytelling genius."--Dinesh Ramde, Associated Press

"A stunning rumination on life's important questions by a masterful storyteller."--Marisha Pessl, author of Special Topics in Calamity Physics

"As engaging as [Wouk's] megaselling historical novels."--Booklist

"Herman Wouk is one of the wisest men I have ever known. In aviation the best information comes from pilots themselves, in airplanes, not from air-traffic controllers or meteorologists on the ground, in some big air-conditioned office. In The Language God Talks, Herman sends us all a most valuable pilot report."--Jimmy Buffett, Vanity Fair

"In a crowded book market filled with self-serving and redundant theories about humankind's place in the grand scheme, it is rare to encounter an original, honest, charming voice. Such is the case with Wouk's latest work....Wouk's humility, humor and insight make the book a joy to read and a wonder to contemplate...Authentic, accessible prose mixed with real insight."--Kirkus Reviews

"Wouk is a great storyteller, and his anecdotes about meeting with brilliant thinkers such as Feynman are entertaining. With Wouk's conversational writing style and humble approach to his subject, The Language God Talks is a fun, intellectually engaging book."--Doug Childers, Richmond-Times Dispatch

"In this book, as in his previous ones, whenever Herman Wouk speaks of God it is always with both exquisite curiosity and warmth."--Elie Wiesel
