These eight stories centre around a motley cast of wanderers and exiles: modern Jews who have left their homes to join Europe's counterculture of bohemians, artists, aesthetes and freethinkers. Tales of rivalry, debauchery and revenge in the Western European diaspora; mournful happenings on snowy mountain peaks; the comings and goings of various oddballs and outcasts in émigré boarding houses, and the pangs of immigrant nostalgia.
What people are saying:
“Kennedy renders Nomberg’s Yiddish into impeccable English prose . . . The resulting translation is absorbing."
