A homeless Jewish soldier encounters other lost souls while wandering the streets of post-WW I Poland in this tale of despair, first published in Yiddish in 1928. ``Rabon has remarkably created a character who responds acutely to the life of the city from which he is isolated, and this sensitivity adds beauty to the otherwise harsh, strange landscape of this striking novel,'' said PW.
