Product Details


"Clever, mischievous and humane, this is literary journalism in the proud tradition of Ryszard Kapuscinski and Joseph Roth."–Amos Elon

“Sarna has elevated the human-interest story to an art form. His book sheds light on human suffering in general, and the Israeli experience in particular. These fascinating accounts reveal a truth that is stranger than fiction, and a good deal stronger as well.”–The Dallas Morning News

“Incantory. . . .Sarna writes searingly of the Jewish experience. . . . He understands that horror often hides in the small details, the seemingly trivial. His story "Whoever Knew Shut Up or Died," in simply tracing the fate of an Israeli family trying to track down a baby lost in Poland during the horror, may be as unforgettable an expression of the numbing legacy of the Nazi murder of Jews as anything out there.”—The San Francisco Chronicle

“Short, haunting and delicately drawn portraits, of settlers, soldiers, artists, [and] war heroes. [Sarna] touches on all the themes of Israel’s modern tragedy. Thoughtful and humane. . .A marvellous book”—The Times Literary Supplement
