Not in the Same Breath is the first book of original poetry by the poet and translator Zackary Sholem Berger. The Yiddish and English chapbook, with surprising illustrations, isn’t a customary bilingual edition of facing-page translations, but a collection of independent poems in the two language. Springing nimbly over centuries, the work connects English and Yiddish in unexpected and world-broadening ways. Buy it here.
Elinor Nauen says: “Zackary Sholem Berger’s beautiful, sophisticated, deep and playful book just might turn you into a snake or a lover: The power is there. The sorrow and wry humor of Yiddish, leavened with Torah learning, resonate limitlessly, explosively. You’re sure to fall for Not in the Same Breath.”
The book was designed by Architect, designer, and author Jeremy Kargon.
