JBC is thrilled to part­ner with Harper­Via on a give­away of four incred­i­ble books from Jew­ish writ­ers at the pub­lish­er ded­i­cat­ed to pub­lish­ing extra­or­di­nary inter­na­tion­al voic­es. Scroll below to learn more about these four stun­ning nov­els—The Lost Shtetl by Max Gross, The Only Daugh­ter by A.B Yehoshua, Stock­holm by Noa Yedlin, and On Her Own by Lihi Lapid. 

On Her Own by Lihi Lapid, trans­lat­ed by Son­dra Silverston

From start to fin­ish, On Her Own is an engag­ing, illu­mi­nat­ing sto­ry of fam­i­ly and injury. It exam­ines grief, the fal­lac­i­es of wish­ful think­ing, and per­sis­tent hope in a way that many read­ers will find mem­o­rable.” ‑Ben­jamin Selesnick

Stock­holm by Noa Yedlin

An eight-day time­line serves as a pres­­sure-cook­er for this joy­ous and bleak com­e­dy of errors. Yedlin has cre­at­ed a mov­ing and fun­ny nar­ra­tive about a group of friends, each full of regrets, desires, and inse­cu­ri­ties that are cast into sharp focus fol­low­ing the death of Avishay.” ‑Omer Friedlander

The Only Daugh­ter by A.B Yehoshua

The Only Daugh­ter tells the sto­ry of twelve-year-old Rachele Luz­zat­to, an Ital­ian Jew­ish girl who must simul­ta­ne­ous­ly nav­i­gate the Christ­mas hol­i­days and her father’s sud­den health prob­lems.” ‑Isado­ra Kianovsky

The Lost Shtetl by Max Gross

What if there was a hid­den Jew­ish vil­lage in Poland that escaped the Holo­caust? … Alive with human emo­tion, his­to­ry and provoca­tive ques­tions that call for debate, Max Gross’s first nov­el is a dis­cus­sion group’s dream.” ‑Sharon Elswit
