Touch the Water, Touch the Wind
First UK printing
First UK edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13.5cm. 179pp.
As the Germans advance into Poland in 1939, Elisha Pomeranz, a Jewish mathematician and watchmaker, escapes into the wintry forest, leaving behind his beautiful, intelligent wife, Stefa. After the war, having evaded the concentration camps, they begin to build new lives—Stefa in Stalin's Russia and Elisha in Israel, where, as they seek their reunion, another war is brewing.
A good copy. There is some fading to the dustwrapper's sleeve and the wrapper's been price-clipped but this is otherwise a good solid copy.
