"All those who admire Aharon Appelfeld's work will find Gila Ramras-Rauch's analysis both exciting and rewarding." - Elie Wiesel. The contemporary Hebrew novelist Aharon Appelfeld is one of the foremost chroniclers of the impact of the Holocaust on the human psyche. His fiction weaves sensitive and disturbing tales about individuals in the pre- and post-Holocaust worlds. In the first book devoted entirely to Appelfeld's work, Gila Ramras-Rauch explores his life, his shattered universe, and the development of his unique esthetic. A book-by-book analysis of his entire body of fiction - short stories, novellas, and novels from the early 1960s to the early 1990s, including such works as "Smoke"; "Tzili, the Story of a Life"; "Badenheim, 1939"; and "Katerina" - provides a perceptive guide to Appelfeld's oeuvre.
