Lives and Embers

If life is a cosmic stage where illusions are the only reality, says Jacob G. Rosenberg, it is through these illusions that we can sometimes better recognise our world, our fellows and ourselves. Such is the author’s hope in Lives and Embers. The book’s first section, Lives, consists of 15 stories that explore dimensions of the human landscape. The second, Embers, something of a novelty in Australian literature, comprises 32 shorter pieces inspired by the midrashic tradition of biblical interpretation; they investigate the eternal human drama through the prisms of scripture, history, folklore and fable. Engaging and thought-provoking, this is a remarkable first prose collection in English from a notable poet.

“Jacob G. Rosenberg is a great writer. It’s as simple as that.” Phillip Adams

“Taking the traditional themes of exile, quest, sexuality, and time’s metamorphoses, they ask us again to consider, with his characters, who it is we are. This is a remarkable book.” Chris Wallace-Crabbe
