Five Leaves Publications announces the publication of From Revolution
to Repression: Soviet Yiddish Writing 1917-1952 edited, and mostly
translated by the late Joseph Sherman.

The book was launched on August 12 of this year, at a 150-strong event
in London commemorating the Soviet Yiddish writers and other members
of the Jewish Anti-Facist Committee killed by Stalin 60 years ago to
the day.

The book comprises a long introduction by Joseph Sherman, essays on
each of the writers covered and material in translation from the work
of Dovid Bergelson, Peretz Markish, David Hofshteyn, Der Nister, Leyb
Kvitko and Izi Kharik. The translations cover various forms of work
including socialist realism and modernist literature, and includes a
full translation (by Seth Wolitz) of Troyer (Grief) by Hofshteyn,
illustrated by some of the original drawings by Chagall.

>From Revolution to Repression (287 pages, 978 1 907869 570, £9.99) is
available from bookshops and Amazon, but those outside of the UK will
find it cheapest to order from www.bookdepository.co.uk which offers
