Judith: A Tale of Love & Woe

Miriam Karpilove

Translated from the Yiddish by Jessica Kirzane

Karpilove’s debut, an epistolary novel published when she was twenty-three, follows the tumultuous relationship between a small-town Jewish girl uprooted due to antisemitic violence and the dashing revolutionary who routinely disappoints her.

Miriam Karpilove

(1888–1956) was a prolific Yiddish author of novels and short stories.

“Karpilove’s sly, artful narrative is well-served by Jessica Kirzane’s lovely and confident translation.”

— Ellen Cassedy, translator of
