The central link in this unique collection of short stories is the post-Holocaust impact on the lives of the characters. Each story is situated in a different geographical locale as if to demonstrate that the shards of that evil epoch are scattered far and wide, the emotional traumatic outcomes are diverse and may or may not bring "closure." The characters are highly individual. Some are fragile and frail, others are brutal. Some are impaired and are relieved of their debility through the unfolding of events, long after their traumatic occurrence. The passage of time is key to the stories, each beginning during the era of WW11 and ending in the present.

For the reader who has an interest in post-Holocaust literature and in the damaged human condition, this book is a must, since it does not deal directly with the events that concluded in 1945. It begins with the emotional and fateful sequel as experienced by the survivors of that horror and transpiring results, such that each individual's story unfolds years after the etiology.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This stunning collection of stories makes a significant contribution to post-Holocaust literature. At a time when the memory of the Holocaust is receding in the collective consciousness of the world, it is all the more imperative to keep alive the reality of the atrocities of the Holocaust. "A House Too Small "is part of a lively and urgent burgeoning of post-Holocaust literature that has gained considerable momentum in the decades surrounding the new millennium.
--Victoria Aarons, O.R. & Eva Mitchell Endowed Chair in Literature at Trinity University


Some things happened and are not true and some things are true but never happened. Ezra Hirschmann s writings bring forth a truth that can best be found in fiction. I was moved. I was touched. I was impressed. I am grateful!

Michael Berenbaum, director, Sigi Ziering Center for the Study of the Holocaust and Ethics, American Jewish University"


May these stories lodge deep in our minds and hearts, and linger in our souls.
