Yenta Mash has left us rich images and complex responses to human betrayal and God’s indifference in stories that are compelling and memorable.”— Irena Klepfisz, author of A Few Words in the Mother Tongue

“Ellen Cassedy’s translation of short stories by Yenta Mash gives voice to a near-forgotten writer and sheds light on a part of the Jewish people whose story and culture has been almost erased from the historical record…. Cassedy’s translations are crafted with a keen attention to register and tone, elegantly rendering Mash’s matter-of-fact style to evoke tragedy, dislocation, and perseverance. ” — Sebastian Schulman, executive director, KlezKanada

“Yenta Mash’s stories are a must—a reminder that, through the persecutions in the Russian Pale, ‘something very important has been lost,’ but also that something strong survives.” — Foreword Reviews
