About the Author
Since he arrived in
the United States in 1947, Herman Taube has written for numerous newspapers
and is the author of a variety of books, from poetry to prose. His
most recent include Land of Blue Skies, Between the Shadows; New
and Selected Works, and Refugee Village (winner of
the "Morris Rodman Prize" of 1992). Taube, a graduate of American
University with an M.A. in Literature-Creative Writing, lectures regularly
on Literature, World War II, and the Holocaust. He has taught at
the University of Maryland and the American University and currently is
a faculty member at the College of Jewish Studies. As a journalist,
critic, and historian, he found it natural to pursue and write about the
art and life of Yankel Ginzburg (a man truly colored by his past).
In addition to his works on Yankel Ginzburg he has also written a new novel,
My Baltimore Compatriots, which was published by Dryad Press
in January 1995 and was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
