The Witches of Escazú (and Other Jewish Fairytales) (Paperback)
Dybbuks and golems. Witches and wicked kings. Tragedy and triumph in the Promised Land.
The Witches of Escaz and Other Jewish Fairytales marries Jewish ancestral wisdom and mythical fantasy in this fast-paced, galvanizing collection.
Cast Hebrew incantations to manifest a terrorizing beast, creep through dark forests on plagued land, and embark on a sage's long pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Devour generational history and ancestral knowledge from every corner of the Diaspora. Meet the bewitching supernatural beings of Jewish legends from a faraway past.
The author's debut celebrates poignant characters met with evil forces and armed with the strong Jewish resolve to overcome adversity. The anthology discards the antisemitism of classic European fairytales from the root and plants seeds for a new perspective of Jewish folklore.
Artist Roots Metals demonstrates intricate storytelling and provides an exclusive glossary of Jewish monsters and other mythical creatures to add depth to the reader's experience.
