My Mother's Sabbath Days: A Memoir by Chaim Grade
Translated from the Yiddish by Channa Kleinerman Goldstein and Inna Hecker Grade
This tender and moving memoir by the great Yiddish writer Chaim Grade takes us to the very source of his widely praised novels and poems---the city of Vilna, the "Jerusalem of Lithuania" during the years before World War II.
"A poignant memoir...A memorable book in the tradition of Sholom Aleichem and S.Y. Agnon. The excellent translation retains all the life and color of the original...Highly recommended."
