About this title


A collection of stories tracing one Jewish family's flight from the war-torn Europe to Canada explores the "second-generation" phenomenon among Holocaust survivors.

From the Publisher:

"The County of Birches is unique, devoid of the usual cliches of Holocaust or post-Holocaust literature, fresh, told with love, devotion and above all considerable literary expertise." --Josef Skvorecky, author of The Engineer of Human Souls and Headed for the Blues

"These stories are a tremendous testament to the human spirit. In spite of their quotient of anguish, they are highly hopeful and reflect a wondrous understanding of one family's 'mysterious capacity for love.'" --Alistair MacLeod, author of The Lost Salt Gift of Blood

"Judith Kalman's The County of Birches is a dazzling debut by a mature and gifted writer. Kalman's spare and elegant prose illuminates the page, from the first to the last...These interconnected stories chart the resilience and elasticity of the heart. Superbly written and deeply satisfying." --Sandra Birdsell, juror for the Danuta Gleed Literary Award, given by the Writers' Union of Canada
