"Criminals, dreamers and performers . . . make their way through Karpinowitz’s pages in pungent, unforgettable characterizations; and their fates—often tragic, often brutal, and not only because of the Nazi murder machine, though very often because of it—imbue every page with a sentiment that is all the more powerful by it being earned through careful literary technique and scene craft. The read is smooth, except when it should be rough; it preserves local flavor."—Jeremy Dauber, Atran Professor of Yiddish Language, Literature, and Culture, Columbia University
