Seeds in the Desert By Mendel Mann, Translated by Heather Valencia. A Yiddish Book Center Translation
Listen to our podcast with translator Heather Valencia here.
Available for the first time in translation, Mendel Mann’s stories follow his life in reverse, from Israel in the 1950s to his experiences in the post-War Soviet Union and his childhood in Poland. With psychological insight and a focus on the tension between remembrance and reinvention, Mann provides indelible portraits of survivors as they confront the past and struggle to create a meaningful existence in the fledgling state of Israel.
