The Elsewhere. Or, midbar-biblical Hebrew for both wilderness and speech. A place of possession and dispossession, loss and nostalgia. But also a place that speaks. Ingeniously using a Talmudic interpretive formula about the disposition of boundaries, Newton explores narratives of place, flight, border, and beyond. The writers of The Elsewhere are a disparate company of twentieth-century memoirists and fabulists from the Levant (Palestine/Israel, Egypt) and East Central Europe.

Together, their texts-cunningly paired so as to speak to one another in mutually revelatory ways-narrate the paradox of the near distance.
