Shalom: Australian Jewish Stories
Collins, 238 pp, $8.95 pb
Shalom, compiled by Nancy Keesing is I think a brilliant and moving collection of short stories.
Ms Keesing, an indefatigable compiler, has brought together for the first time a selection of Jewish stories and. arranged them in three sections, each one of which throws light on a certain aspect of Jewish life, either in Europe, in Australia over a long period, or in the present Australia-Israel conflict. This is a fine and sensitive arrangement of the stories.
