Translated from the Romanian by Alistair Ian Blyth

Once again, the extraordinary storyteller, Ludovic Bruckstein, opens the door onto a lost world of Jewish history and lore in pre-war central Europe. Bringing in historical and ficitonal characters, he weaves tales of wisdom and mystery which linger inside us long after the story has ended. Bruckstein's previous titles (The Trap, 2019 and With an Unopened Umbrella in the Pouring Rain, 2021) have gained him a growing audience of dedicated readers in the English-speaking world, where his work has been too-long absent. 

This edition comes complete with a fascinating glossary of terms and historical references complied by the translator.
