(1991)
A collection of stories by

 
 
In Stories of an Imaginary Childhood Melvin Jules Bukiet inscribes the world that might have been his own if not for the catastrophe that destroyed most of Jewish life in eastern Europe during the 1940s. Set before the Holocaust in the tiny Polish shtetl of Proszowice, each interconnected story follows the young protagonist through the pleasures and humiliations of childhood and the rites of manhood, as he fights against historical, social, and psychological forces that threaten to pull him down.

€ Winner of the Edward Lewis Wallant Award for Best Jewish-American Fiction € Finalist for the National Jewish Book Award for Fiction
