This is an emailed copy of a press release for Yiddish Ballads sent in February 2007, added to this were two pictures provided by the artist.
Manger went on to publish three volumes of Yiddish poetry
and plays in London…prince among poets, he was dishevelled,
gaunt, and usually had plenty of whisky inside him.”
David Mazower in forthcoming Jewish Chronicle 18th Feb 2007
