Burkah and Other Stories by Layle Silbert
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 her experiences in this life.
Layle Silbert's stories comprise a gallery of works both strong and subtle, dark and light; pictures of real people in the real world.
