Got into the guy through the Quay Bros.

Jewish,East European sensitivities between the 2 world wars.

Superb short stories shot through with realism,amazing flights of fancy all wrapped up in an adolescents view..Startlingly honest and a marvellous evocation of the times and philosophies
swirling around mid european states soon to be consumed by Fascism of the right and left.
