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.

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.

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!

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