Poetic, witty, and ever so faintly surreal, Sefer delicately explores the legacy of the Holocaust for the postwar generation, a generation for whom a devastating history has grown distant, both temporally and emotionally. One of Poland’s best-known poets, Ewa Lipska is today a major figure in European literature. In this translation of Sefer, Lipska’s first novel, the translators deftly capture the poet’s unmistakable voice—cool and precise, gently ironic, and deeply humane.
