"Award-winning translator Jessica Cohen does a stellar job, tackling the novel’s multifarious voices and nuances so artfully it is surprisingly easy to forget that the novel was not written in English."

Ranen Omer-Serman, Jewish Book Council


“...brilliantly translated from Hebrew by Jessica Cohen...”

The Economist

"...beautifully translated as it is by Jessica Cohen - whose rendition of Vera's idiosyncratic Hebrew into fractured English is especially impressive..."
