About the Author
Hersh Dovid Nomberg (1876-1927) was an early modernist Yiddish writer who made a name for himself with his characteristically atmospheric short stories, mostly set in Warsaw, populated by artists, philosophers and other outcasts.
Yitskhok (Isac) Horowitz (1893-1961) was a talented literary voice in American Yiddish culture. Editor, poet, playwright, translator, children's writer, vegetarian activist-Yitskhok Horowitz wore many hats in a life that led him from a village in Romania to New York and on to Los Angeles. The Tavern of Popricani represents one of the first translations of any of his works into English.
