AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Serge Liberman, who died in December 2017, was an important and highly distinctive Australian ethnic writer. His short stories, including the posthumously published The Storyteller, conduct what is in effect a conversation between two worlds: that of post-Enlightenment rationality, on the one hand, and that of the magical, the folkloric, the Hassidic, imagination of the shtetl, on the other. Liberman’s profound tragic sense does not preclude the possibility of human redemption through empathy, compassion and imaginative inspiration.'  (Publication abstract)

    'All the contributors to this memorial issue of Coolabah were close to Serge Liberman and each has written in the way they have felt fit to honour Serge’s legacy as a writer, medical practitioner, intellectual, his profound humanity and understanding of human nature. Serge left behind him what we call “a golden wake” for others to follow. His life and work are an example to us all of passion and humanity. He will not be forgotten.'
