His work foregrounds loneliness, social anxiety, and people’s frustrated longing for meaningful relationships - themes just as relevant to today’s society as they were during his era.

RACHEL MINES is a retired professor who taught in the English Department at the Langara College. She was a Yiddish Book Centre Translation Fellow. LISA RICHTER is an award-winning poet, writer, editor, and English as a second language teacher. She is the author of two books of poems. Her poetry and nonfiction have appeared in numerous journals. She lives in Toronto. Nautilus and Bone chronicles the life and work of the radical, passionate Russian-Jewish American poet Anna Margolin on her path toward self-determination.
