When the World was Whole - Charles Fenyvesi

Picador, 1991, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Very slightly ruffled edges of DJ. Otherwise a very well presented copy.

Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “In east central Europe, for centuries Jews stood as a separate tribe whose members were at once immensely rich and pitifully poor, above all mysterious. Today, in the small villages of Hungary and Transylvania, of Poland and Yugoslavia, there are no more Jews; they remain as folk memories, the source of superstition: there are hidden treasures, people whisper, left behind by the Jews, but it will take centuries to uncover. In these stories, Fenyvesi recaptures bits and pieces from a world that was once whole, in which lives were arranged in secret symmetries, where one good deed invoked another, and a gift from heaven passed from one generation to the next.”
