Burkah and Other Stories

short stories by Layle Silbert

8.5" x 5.5"
134 pages

An entertaining and beguiling collection of prose, Silbert's Burkah is introspective and lyrical. Her writing reaches the unexplored wrinkles of human life and her sober realism presents a unique portrait of humanity. From photographing the camera shy Isaac Bashevis Singer, to trying to cope with life as an outsider in the far east, to becoming a female intellectual in Pre-WW II Chicago, Silbert gives readers a full portrait of the world we live in.

Layle Silbert's stories comprise a gallery of works both strong and subtle, dark and light; pictures of real people in the real world.
