A Mystical Journey

Angelina Muñiz-Huberman

Award-Winning Latin American Jewish Woman Writer


A spiritual odyssey to find life
in the link between love and mysticism

“The uniqueness of Angelina Muñiz-Huberman’s historical novel lies in its combination of poetic prose, apparent simplicity, and an improbable happy ending. Within the structure of the archetypal journey of the hero, a Jewish teenager in late sixteenth-century Spain manages to avoid the Inquisition by joining a perilous Christian pilgrimage to the Holy Land. He is assisted by a magical muleteer who appears and disappears periodically in different guises until the protagonist and his beloved Miriam are safely settled in the northern town of Safed.
“Although the author’s fascination with Jewish history and her poetic style mark the majority of her books of fiction and essays, I consider Tierra adentro (A Mystical Journey) her most outstanding work and one that contributes significantly to her reputation as one of Mexico’s and Latin America’s most important writers.”

Seymour Menton (Translator)
