In this unique collection of short stories, the central link is the profound impact of the Holocaust on the lives of first and subsequent generation survivors. Each story has roots in World War II, but all end in the present. Extending into Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas, the stories demonstrate that the shards of Holocaust evil are scattered far and wide and that the passage of time may, or may not, bring closure. The characters are diverse, from the fragile and frail to the courageous in the face of brutality. Through the unfolding of events long after their traumatic occurrence, some protagonists are relieved of their debilities, while others are rendered desperate by them. For readers interested in post-Holocaust literature, the damaged human condition, and family sagas, this book is a must. Reaching far beyond events that concluded in 1945, A House Too Small carries the aftermath of the Shoah forward, deftly unfolding its powerful personal consequences through remembrance, forgiveness, retribution, tragedy, intrigue, devotion, and redemption.
