Polish edition published by Pogranicze

A marvellous family novel, wise and pittoresque on the last 20 years of life in the Eastern European SHTETL . A moving piece of literature of a loss of the Jewish communities drawn by Grigory Kanovich in sympathetic detail against a backdrop of small-town life that is as vivid as anything in Tolstoy. Kanovich weaves into his narrative the long-held beliefs Jews clung to in a dangerous and unpredictable world.
