The Watermill

Ranging from remote provinces in China and Cambodia to pre- and post-war Yiddish Poland, Kurdish Iraq and Iran, and Indigenous and present-day Melbourne, Arnold Zable’s quartet of stories depicts the ebbs and flows of trauma and healing, memory and forgetting, the ancient and the contemporary. And ever-recurring journeys in search of belonging.

Praise for Arnold Zable
andThe Watermill

‘Zable elevates history into near mythical tales of wonder.’

‘This is a man who truly believes in the power of stories.’

‘I can think of no other writer who describes the aching heart of humanity with as much wisdom and compassion as Arnold Zable. The Watermill brings gentle light to some dark places. Whatever ails the human race, Zable is surely part of the solution.’
