Between the Doorposts
A daughter of survivors gives voice to the passion and pain of post-holocaust experience in this extraordinary first book of poetry by Isa Milman. Ancient Hebrew melodies sing of a family and life now lost, and the revelation of a new world, as the poet wrestles with identity and personal 'place.'
