Reading with Doron Rabinovici

'Andernorts'

Origins, identity, belonging – Doron Rabinovici keeps the relationships in a Jewish family spinning round and round in his novel 'Andernorts', revealing old secrets and observing the creation of new ones. By the end of the gripping tale, all certainties have gone. Only one thing seems sure: home is where you feel at your most foreign.

'Suche nach M'

Combining the criminal and the surreal, the novel tells the fantastical story of Dani Morgenthau and Arieh Scheinowitz, the sons of Jewish Holocaust survivors from Krakow.
