WINNER, 2018 NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARD GOLDBERG PRIZE FOR DEBUT FICTION
Authored by Bram Presser, this book is a critical record and is a fable. The quest for the true story of Jakub and Daša is a failure and a triumph. Memory may be distorted, fractured and fading as survivors become increasingly hard to find, and records and artefacts are lost or destroyed. Nevertheless, there is something that continues to survive in the retelling, and this is transformative, a heart-warming story about a grandson’s devotion to the power of storytelling and his family’s legacy.
