Two novels and one story by Boris Sandler, the well-known Yiddish prose writer, are included under the title page of the book "Red Shoes for Rachel." The heroes of all three works are about to make crucial decisions. The first novel, "Somewhere Along the Byways of Longing," centers on the theme of the decline and passing of the generation that survived the Holocaust. In the second novel, "Red Shoes for Rachel," the psychological state of the children of the survivors, a result of the dark and shattering experience of their parents, is depicted. The heroes of the third story, "Studies of Solfeggio," suddenly discover the magic of "kama sutra."
