A Complex Feast Dec 21 2010
By Book Maven - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Glatstein Chronicles are a very special prism that brings slices of both Europe and the immigrant experience in America from 1905 to 1934 into rich focus. An engrossing and deeply satisfying read. Does it have a peer? A very knowledgeable friend (who brought the Chronicles to my attention) suggested Kafka's Amerika.

After reading the Chronicles, I moved on to Glatstein's poetry, both The Selected Poems of Jacob Glatstein (transl. Ruth Whitman) and I Keep Recalling (transl. Barnett Zumoff). Go for the latter, a bilingual edition that validates the claim that Glatstein is one of the finest poets of the twentieth century. If you can make out the Yiddish at all, you are in for a double treat--a smooth, illuminating translation and the wonderful original.

Very well written, strongly conveys the author's feelings of the times. Powerful book. Feb. 9 2013
By Charles Iseman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Strongly conveys the author's observations and feelings on his trip from the US to Poland in 1934. The reader can "feel" the ominousness of the times. Written eloquently with pathos.
