Finding Babel


Stranger Says:

I will always love you, Isaac Babel. You are one of the greatest short story writers of the 20th century. Joseph Stalin killed you. In this documentary, which is such a treat for people like me (the eternal lovers of your storytelling), your grandson, who is a Russian American, looks for you, tries to get close to your genius, your essence, your words. But he just can’t. Indeed, no one can. You will always be in the twilight of that distant cemetery wall in the opening lines of “How It Was Done in Odessa.” (CHARLES MUDEDE)
