With vibrant versatility, Nicole Poole narrates this collection of five short stories and a novella. In "Other People's Lives," Poole exhibits impressive range as she executes a strident cacophony of dialogue, especially in her characterization of Maria, the German immigrant whose home the keenly observant Louise joins as a boarder. Each story is given the unique tenor of the postwar Jewish experience, bridging the old world and the new through the voice of Poole, whose presentation delivers an emotional blend of history and circumstance. From the young, sarcastic protagonist, Miriam, in "Sour or Suntanned, It Makes No Difference" to the flinty Naomi of the title story, Poole's narration illuminates this collection's theme that history will not be ignored.
