Praise

“A captivating portrait of the Sephardic experience in all its unity, dispersion, divided emotional sentiments, nostalgia and cultural identification. . . . A rich [and] unprecedented anthology.”
Hadassah Magazine

“A welcome contribution . . . This collection is well-balanced, a warranted tribute to Sephardi writers.”
Jerusalem Post

“Informative . . . An unusual anthology, well worth dipping into.”
Kirkus

“[Stavans] vibrates with energy. He’s organized an astonishingly varied, lively collection.”
The Seattle Times

“Eloquent . . . This book is in its own way, as important as Irving Howe and Eliezer Greenberg’s groundbreaking ‘A Treasury of Yiddish Stories.’”
Jewish News Weekly

“Ilan Stavans offers a volume that is educational, informative and thought-provoking.”
Chicago Jewish Star
