Make It Concrete

For twenty years, Isabel Toledo has been telling other people's stories – as a ghostwriter for Holocaust survivors. But now the boundaries between their past and her present are collapsing: barking dogs, a clerk asking for papers, police in the subway, push her to the brink of collapse. And the story she most wants to uncover, her own mother’s ordeal, defies all efforts to be brought to light.

She teaches literature and writing at the University of Haifa and has published scholarly articles and a book length study of Cynthia Ozick's fiction, Belonging Too Well (SUNY, 2009). Much of her fiction is about the experiences of ex-pats in love, in flux, in the liminal space between cultures, languages, and historical epochs. Her short fiction has appeared in various journals in the US and UK. A collection, SNAFU and Other Stories, was published in 2014 (Cuidono Press).
