Once again, the extraordinary storyteller, Ludovic Bruckstein, opens the door onto a lost world of Jewish history and lore in pre-war central Europe. Bringing in historical and ficitonal characters, he weaves tales of wisdom and mystery which linger inside us long after the story has ended. Bruckstein’s previous fiction (The Trap, 2019 andWith an Unopened Umbrella in the Pouring Rain, 2021) have gained him a growing audience of dedicated readers in the English-speaking world, where his work has been too-long absent.
