A Sense of Place
Bouncing between a stolen house in a Polish shtetl and a pop bottle on Vancouvers East Side, the book is a fresh and telling portrait of the relationship between prewar Polish shtetl life and Jewish lives today. In these old and new worlds a mystery lurks, and Ravvin lovingly recovers the past of both. A novel of city life, music-making, and the repercussions of large and small crimes.

NORMAN RAVVIN is a writer, critic and teacher. He lives in Montreal and is Chair in Canadian Jewish Studies at Concordia University. His novels The Joyful Child, Café des Westens, and Lola by Night have won prizes in Alberta, Ontario and Quebec.

MICHAEL SCHWARTZ is the Director of Community Engagement of the Jewish Museum & Archives of British Columbia.
