‘An Unexpected Afterlife’

‘Dan Sofer’ is the pen name of South African-born software creator, Daniel J. Miller ‎who made aliya in 2001 after studying and completing volunteer work in Israel as a ‎young adult. ‎
Miller and his family now live in Jerusalem, so it’s no surprise that his work is suffused ‎with the city’s “sights, sounds, legends, and spirit of adventure”. A Love and Beyond, a ‎crime thriller also set in Jerusalem, won Miller a medal for the 2016 Best Books Award ‎for Religious Fiction.‎

an_unexpected_afterlife_book_cover.jpgThe storyline of his book:‎
You only live twice.‎
Moshe Karlin wakes up one morning, naked and alone, in the Mount of Olives ‎Cemetery. ‎
According to his family and friends, he died two years ago, but Moshe is not about to ‎accept his demise lying down.‎
Is his new lease on life a freak of nature or the start of the long-awaited Resurrection? ‎Moshe doesn't really care. He vows to beat his "afterlife crisis" and win back his life - ‎and his wife - if it is the last thing he does.
But the road ahead is full of unexpected dangers.‎
‎Along the way he gains insight into life, love, and the Jewish State, as well as the ‎suspicion that perhaps his perfect first life was not so perfect after all.

Copies of his book 'An Unexpected Afterlife' will be on sale at NIS 60 instead of NIS 80.
He will also bring his award-winning book 'A Love and Beyond'
