Winner of the National Jewish Book Award for Debut Fiction, The Book of Dirt is the gripping tale of one grandson’s quest to uncov­er the Holocaust stories his grandparents could never tell, set against a reimagining of those experiences from scraps, whis­pers, and rumours he found along the way. A mesmerizing blend of history and Jewish myth, Presser asks why we tell stories and how well we can ever really know the people we love.
