Boris Sandler captures the disrupted world of Eastern European Jews who have miraculously survived and whom fate has scattered among foreign lands.

"Boris Sandler is the best-known name among the few active Yiddish prose writers and poets of our days. Sandler’s prose reflects his experience of living in Soviet Moldova, Moscow, Jerusalem, and New York. The book is excellently translated by Barnett Zumoff, who is a recognized master of translations from Yiddish into English. The selection of the novellas is very good—I believe the book will find a significant number of readers and will certainly use it in my classes on Yiddish literature in translation."—Gennady Estraikh, Clinical Professor of Hebrew and Judaic Studies, New York University, author and co-editor of many books, including In Harness: Yiddish Writers’ Romance with Communism
