Wandering Jew: The Search for Joseph Roth
Notting Hill Editions
This publication is part of artist Allison Katz reading list, selected on the occasion of ‘Artery’ at Camden Art Centre, 2022.
A journey through the past and present of Europe's eastern borderlands in search of one of Austria's most seductive and disturbing 20th Century writers. Traveller, prophet, perpetual displaced person and compulsive liar, Joseph Roth's fiction and journalism embody a world twice destroyed but still strangely with us in the new millennium. In Austria and Ukraine, Dennis Marks explores the spiritual geography of a still neglected master.
