‘Jenni Daiches has astonishingly re-created a lost world... I wept and laughed and wished I had written it.’

Miriam Margolyes

Rosa Roshkin is five years old when her family are murdered in a pogrom and she is forced to leave behind everything she knows with only a suitcase of clothes and her father’s violin.

Somewhere Else is an epic generational novel about womanhood and Judaeo-Scottish experience across two World Wars, the creation of Israel and the fall of the Berlin Wall. A novel which explores today’s most difficult and urgent questions, not least of which: how to find identity in displacement.

reviews

This poignant, sparely-written novel starts in a European past of pogroms, dispossession and cruelty, but it creeps cunningly into our ugly present-day. Jenni Daiches has astonishingly re-created a lost world, the story of so many who came from somewhere else and tried to make a life. The shadows she brings unerringly to life are the tale of my own paternal family. I wept and laughed and wished I had written it.
