Four excerpts from Rachel Shihor’s novella Yankinton have been selected, and translated from the Hebrew for this cahier. These poignant and humorous tales are as much about the act of recollection as they are about the remembered Tel Aviv of the 1940s. In a playful and yet muted style, Shihor tells of the everyday life of a child beginning to grasp her surroundings. Six works by the painter David Hendler further explore the city.

Editorial Reviews

Days Bygone is a window onto the extraordinary mind of Rachel Shihor. There is no question that she is a great writer—only a master could make such originality feel inevitable. The only question is why so few people have had the chance to read her.”
