* inc Aust GST
Pinchas Goldhar arrived in Melbourne from Lodz in 1928, bringing with him a unique Eastern European Jewish sensibility in observing the lives and concerns of Jewish existence.
Utilising his background in journalism, his stories encapsulate the anxieties of displacement, along with a keen understanding of the looming dangers of rising anti-Semitism.
His impassioned writing and chilling foresight have made him one of the most important Yiddish writers in Jewish and Australian literature.
This collection of stories by Australia's most significant Yiddish writer have been translated into English, some never before published. Goldhar was the literary voice of his generation, as well as a leading cultural and social commentator. This new collection will ensure that this wonderful writer is not forgotten.
