Nomberg's stories explore modern Jewish life in the growing cosmopolitan city of Warsaw: young intellectuals in pursuit of truth, beauty, and love; working class fathers tempted by schemes for easy money; teenagers divided between their traditional religious upbringings and the world of secular culture and political revolution. By turns comic, satiric, and earnest, Nomberg's stories take the pulse of Warsaw's Jewish society at the dawn of the twentieth century.

What people are saying:

 “Nomberg never wrote a sentence that didn’t contain the seeds of an idea.”

   — Froyim Kaganovski


“Hilarious and insightful, a glimpse of a vanished world seen close at hand, with poverty, propriety, romance and much more. Nomberg was a forgotten genius, forgotten until . . . now! A very fine translation, too!"

   — Paul Buhle, author of Marxism in the United States

"Poignant, unset­tling, and deeply mov­ing." 

   — Donald Weber, Jewish Book Council
