The Tumblers - A Short Story from For the Relief of Unbearable Urges

Nathan Englander

A story from the collection FOR THE RELIEF OF UNBEARABLE URGES, in which Englander envisions a group of Polish Jews herded toward a train bound for the death camps and, in a deft, imaginative twist, turns them into acrobats tumbling out of harm's way. FOR THE RELIEF OF UNBEARABLE URGES is a work of startling authority and imagination-an audiobook that is as wondrous and joyful as it is wrenchingly sad. A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK "Taut, edgy, sharply observed. . . . A revelation of the human condition." -The New York Times Book Review
