About the Author
Hubert Haddad was born in Tunisia, and is the author of dozens of works, including the novels Palestine (winner of the Prix des Cinq Continents de la Francophonie), Tango Chinois, and La Condition Magique (winner of the Grand Prix du Roman de la Société des Gens de Lettres).
Jennifer Grotz is the editor of Open Letter's poetry series, but is also a poet in her own right (The Needle, Cusp) and translates from French. Additionally, she is a professor of English, creative writing, and translation at the University of Rochester.
"Haddad's novel satisfies in ways similar to that of a great magic trick: an act that offers the audience a blend of fact and fiction, along with a presentation that constantly demands attention."--Benjamin Woodard, Numéro Cinq
." . . [B]oth Haddad's prose and Jennifer Grotz's translation from the French, scattering delicious word choices like quiet little gems throughout a spellbinding narrative, reveal themselves as gorgeous."--Asymptote
." . . [A] successful period-piece, all the more appealing for Haddad's willingness (and ability) to stretch the usual bounds of historical fiction."--The Complete Review
"Masterfully written, Rochester Knockings is a haunting tale you won't be quick to forget."--Coal Hill Review
