This edition, uniting "Isaac's Torah" and "Farewell, Shanghai" in one volume, is dedicated to the centenary of the great humanist and creator Angel Wagenstein. But what is a century against the background of the eternal values and ideas that fertilized his literary and cinematic work... Together with the novel "Far from Toledo", the mentioned titles form a kind of triptych dedicated to the fate of European Jews during the Second World War. Stringing the words like pearls in a necklace, the writer creates a shocking and captivating story about the murky whirlwind of a turning point, about the variety of human characters and the collapse of illusions, about the complexity of life, which is heartlessly short, and human hope - unquenchable.
This edition includes an exclusive illustration by Theodore Ushev, and the artwork was done by the artist Ivo Rafailov.
