Unicorn "My Name is Asher Lev" review by Deborah Hirsch
Art is Asher Lev's passion, his language, his way of interacting with
everything around him. He can't remember a time when he didn't paint or
draw. But this need clashes with his ultra–Orthodox Jewish faith and
upbringing. It's narishkeit (foolishness), time stolen from
studying and serving God. And Asher's subject matter goes against his
religious teachings — surely driven, he's told, by the Sitra Achra, the forces of evil.
