Shlomo Laufer is a prolific Hebrew poet, novelist, translator, and editor. He was born in Lvov in 1940, the year the city was wracked by German and Soviet invasions. Laufer’s family fled east to the USSR and eventually to Israel, at the height of the 1948 War of Independence. Laufer is a bewildered virtuoso, melding disparate times and events and projecting his voice with agonised hilarity into figures like Kafka and Bruno Shulz (as in the ‘Bruno Cycle’, printed here).
Shlomo Laufer 's work featured in PN Review comprises one contribution of poetry.
