Hear from Sasha Senderovich, translator of the 1929 Yiddish-language novel Judgment by David Bergelson. This is the first time Bergelson's book, set in a Jewish shtetl during the Russian Revolution, has been rendered into English. Gary Shteyngart called it "A brilliant, nightmarish look at a world without boundaries set alight by madmen." Bergelson, author of The End of Everything and Descent, was murdered by Stalin in 1952.
