King of Yiddish by Curt Leviant
Listen to our podcast with author Curt Leviant here:
A serio-comic novel that tells of Shmulik Gafni, a professor of Yiddish. Two narratives contrast: One: Gafni's extended search in Poland for the man who murdered his father in the notorious Kielce pogrom. Two: Gafni's infatuation with Malina, a pretty non-Jewish Polish linguist in Jerusalem to study Yiddish. Guess who her private tutor is? Rumors fly. Will synchronicity also fly?
