Baruch Link Scholar in Residence Weekend

Deploying distinctly Jewish characters in a distinctly Jewish language, Iczkovits has written an ingenious adventure novel set-in late 19th century Tsarist Russia that
“combines martial arts bloodbath, Gogolian satire,
feminist fantasy and Zionist parable,”

according to Tablet.

You will love The Slaughterman’s Daughter! It is a rousing adventure story, with a myriad of memorable characters. It’s a funny, tragic tale that takes place in the shtetl world of Easten Europe in the 1890’s. The author is Yaniv Iczkovits, an Israeli writer with a great flair for drama and irony.
