Today we mourn the passing of the masterful and elusive novelist Aharon Appelfeld. You can read the NYT obit here.
Appelfeld published Adam & Thomas, his first ever young adult novel in English, with Seven Stories in 2015. It was an American Library Association Mildred L. Batchelder Honor book, a 2016 National Jewish Book Award Finalist, and the winner of the Sydney Taylor Book Award for Older Readers from the Association of Jewish Libraries.
Another young adult novel from Appelfeld, Long Summer Nights, is forthcoming from Seven Stories in 2019.
