Read full description of the books Star of the Unborn:Franz Werfel, the author of The Song of Bernadette, has created a fable to rival all others - an allegorical fantasy of a world beyond the imagination of most people. “Star of the Unborn” is a long novel of speculative fiction by the author of “Song of Bernadette.” Published in 1946, it’s set a hundred thousand years in the future and opens with the raising of the narrator, known as F.W., from the dead. It uncannily anticipates thorny questions about mankind’s troubled relationship with technology, and has thrilling episodes of astral travel, philosophical riddles, and fantastical political allegories something like those later presented in “Battlestar Galactica.” However, do not confuse this with space opera. Werfel presents a world out of his own imagination but presents it so well that you are swept away by his images. The resulting novel is a unique fantasy.

Franz Werfel's best-known works include The Forty Days of Musa Dagh (1933), a classic historical novel that portrays Armenian resistance to the Turks, and The Song of Bernadette (1941). The latter book had its start when Werfel, a Jew escaping the Nazis, found solace in the pilgrimage town of Lourdes, where St. Bernadette had had visions of the Virgin. Werfel made a promise to "sing the song" of the saint if he ever reached the United States. He died in California in 1945.
