Synopses & Reviews
Truly eye-opening, KATSCHEN & THE BOOK OF JOSEPH makes an amazing American debut for Israeli writer Yoel Hoffmann. THE BOOK OF JOSEPH tells the tragic story of a widowed Jewish tailor and his son in 1930's Berlin; KATSCHEN gives an astounding child's-eye-view of a boy orphaned in Palestine. These two intensely moving novellas display the poetry of Hoffmann's language, which one reviewer has called "utterly enchanting . . . like nothing else".
