Avrom Sutzkever in B O D Y

Avrom (Abraham) Sutzkever is known for his powerful, lyrical poetry dealing with the Holocaust that he fought through as a partisan and survived as well other weighty, intense themes in his long life’s body of work. And while this short story has its share of darkness, I think it presents a different side of the writer, a stranger, more surreal, funnier side. But don’t take my word for it, read “A Smile At The End Of The World” in Saturday European Fiction for yourself.
