Fiction. An entertaining and beguiling collection of prose, Silbert's Burkah is heartfelt and lyrical. Her writing reaches the unexplored wrinkles of human life and her sober realism presents a unique portrait of humanity. From photographing the camera shy Isaac Bashevis Singer, to trying to cope with life as an outsider in the far east, to becoming a female intellectual in pre-WW II Chicago, Silbert gives readers a full portrait of the world we live in.
