Senior editor Margaret Heilbrun featured two of our books in her "Spring Fling 2013" column for Library Journal. Anne Gillain's François Truffaut and Karen Auerbach's The House at Ujazdowskie 16 are on Heibrun's list of "exciting stuff" coming from university presses this spring. Learn more about the books:
Available in English for the first time, Anne Gillain's book is considered by many to be the best book on the interpretation of Truffaut's films. Gillian examines how the French New Wave director's personal life and childhood influenced his filmmaking.
Using 16 Ujazdowskie Avenue as a backdrop, Karen Auerbach profiles 10 Jewish families and their struggles to rebuild their lives in Poland after the Holocaust. She presents an engrossing story of loss and rebirth, political faith and disillusionment, and the persistence of Jewishness.
