About this program:

Sutzkever Essential Prose, with translator Zackary Sholem Berger

Featuring: Zackary Sholem Berger

Sutzkever Essential Prose brings to light for English readers the largely unknown prose of a seminal Yiddish poet. Avrom Sutzkever wrote the works in this volume over a span of more than 30 years, blurring the lines between fiction, memoir, and poetry; between real and imagined; between memory and metaphor. Now, through Zackary Sholem Berger’s translations, English readers can enter into an array of compelling, haunting scenes drawn from Sutzkever’s vast imagination and from the unique life he lived.

Presented as part of the Yiddish Book Center’s 2022 Great Jewish Books Club.

This event took place on September 29, 2022. It was presented online by the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, MA.
