Judith: A Tale of Love & Woe by Miriam Karpilove Translation by Jessica Kirzane
Karpilove’s debut, an epistolary novel published when she was twenty-three, follows the tumultuous relationship between a small-town Jewish girl uprooted due to antisemitic violence and the dashing revolutionary who routinely disappoints her.
“Karpilove’s sly, artful narrative is well-served by Jessica Kirzane’s lovely and confident translation.”
— Ellen Cassedy, translator of On the Landing: Stories by Yenta Mash
