About The Watermill
Shortlisted, Non-Fiction Book Award, Queensland Literary Awards, 2020
Arnold Zable takes us to distant lands, ranging from remote provinces in China and Cambodia, to pre- and post-war Yiddish Poland, Kurdish Iraq and Iran, and closer to home, Indigenous and present-day Melbourne, to weave tales of people destined to live extraordinary lives. Many of the stories arise out of trauma, dispossession, persecution and suffering. The wisdom of this masterly storyteller allows a semblance of hope for the universal spirit of humanity.
