Conversation with Translator Rachel Mines: The Rivals and Other Stories

Hosted By: Yiddish Book Center (Amherst, MA)

“The Rivals and Other Stories,” by Jonah Rosenfeld and translated by Rachel Mines, introduces nineteen of Rosenfeld’s short stories to an English-reading audience for the first time. A major literary figure and frequent contributor to the Yiddish-language newspaper Forverts from the 1920s to the mid-1930s, Yiddish writer Jonah Rosenfeld was recognized during and after his lifetime as an explorer of human psychology. His work foregrounds loneliness, social anxiety, and people’s frustrated longing for meaningful relationships―themes just as relevant to today’s Western society as they were during his era.

Presented as part of the Yiddish Book Center’s 2022 Great Jewish Books Club.
