Editorial Reviews

Intensely personal, lyrical, evocative, these poignant sketches detail with urgent beauty two years in the life of a young writer who confronts, first, the misery of hunger and cold, and later, the fear of seizure by the occupation police. The book is powerful in its confinement, vivid in its simplicity. . . . Howard Goldblatt has preserved in graceful, supple, often poetic English the acuity of insight and the nuances of tone. - Los Angeles Times
