Judith: A Tale of Love & Woe (Paperback)
Miriam Karpilove's debut, an epistolary novel published when she was twenty-three, follows the tumultuous relationship between a small-town Jewish girl uprooted due to antisemitic violence and the dashing revolutionary who routinely disappoints her.
Translated from the Yiddish by Jessica Kirzane.
"Karpilove's sly, artful narrative is well-served by Jessica Kirzane's lovely and confident translation."
- Ellen Cassedy, translator of On the Landing: Stories by Yenta Mash
