What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank by Nathan Englander

Following the national bestselling collection of stories For the Relief of Unbearable Urges, award-winning author Nathan Englander presents a new compilation of Judaic-inspired stories that are memorable and bold. Balancing between the locked up and locked in, Englander's short stories spill wisdom in well-incremented doses while leaving many things unsaid. This irresolution and ambiguity becomes as important as what is said between the characters, and a world of parallels circles the characters and the readers, making this a very thought-provoking collection.

When I first started flipping through this book I seriously began to cry. It's a park in the sky! My inner-kid's dream comes true. This is the most amazing innovative, creative and inspirational urban reclamation projects in memory. This model for an ecologically sound public space has a great backstory, too, filled with impossible odds and unlikely heroes.
