Description

Johannes Bobrowski tells the story of the narrator's grandfather, who plats and schemes to ruin the Jewish newcomer who has built a mill down-stream from him. With splendid irony, Bobrowski describes the diverse characters of the Jews, Poles, Gypsies, and Germans who inhabit the village, and whose affairs mirror the larger history of Poland.
