About With This Night:

"Annie Kantar's versions of Leah Goldberg's late poems bring into English Goldberg's signature combination of resonant clarity and crystalline musicality, and the result is a marvelous translation of what is arguably Goldberg's most powerful book. With This Night lets the English reader eavesdrop on modern Hebrew poetry in one of its finest hours."
—Peter Cole
