Issue 22

Welcome to this brilliant, 6
-language issue of Jewish Fiction .net! 18 gorgeous stories, originally written in Spanish, Russian, Hebrew, Yiddish, English, and – for the first time – Danish! 

In honour of the upcoming holiday, two of these stories are about Pesach: “The Search for Ernesto Gonzales” and “A Strand of Hair.” The latter is by Mendele Mokher Seforim and is the third in our “holiday series” of his work. Coincidentally, another story in this issue, “Samson Solomon and His Horses,” was dedicated to Mendele by its author, Jacob Dinezon, upon its first publication, in Yiddish in 1909.
