From the Inside Flap
Heirlooms is a fascinating series of interconnected stories about members of an extended family of Jews before, during and long after the holocaust, in France, in Israel, in the United States. Different women and men define themselves in resistance, denial and ignorance of history through four generations . . . In some ways the entire book is a meditation on the meaning of family and history.Marge Piercy, Sex Wars: A Novel of Gilded-Age New York; Three Women Heirlooms is a masterful collection, infused with devastating beauty. Focusing her precise artistry on the chaos of war, Rachel Hall succeeds in animating loss, preserving memory, and adding powerful imaginative truth to the historical record.Joanna Scott, De Potters Grand Tour Heirlooms is an exquisite and thrilling collection. In fearless and incandescent prose, Rachel Hall traces the fragile resilience and quiet horrors of those displaced by war.She happens to be writing about the Second World War, but these are stories that speak to the essential human experiences of exile and loss and survival. Heirlooms captures what it is to be a refugee, and an immigrant, with a delicacy and precision that delights and haunts.Steve Almond, God Bless America; The Evil B. B. Chow & Other Stories In Heirlooms, Rachel Hall has built an irresistible and gem-lit kaleidoscope, capturing within it the intricate, ephemeral private moments of women and men fleeing wartime violence, neighbors who bear witness or turn away, and children who carry the legacies. Each turn brings another vital angle, another dimension: Halls vision crosses borders and generations, through language at once lyrical and deeply distilled.Heirlooms is a beautiful, transporting, and necessary book.Nancy Reisman, Trompe LOeil; The First Desire
