Eva Salomon's War:

Goliger has written an affecting novel about a time and place that – surprisingly – often gets short shrift in Jewish fiction.  She effectively captures the historical and moral ambiguities of Mandate Palestine, many of which continue to play themselves out in contemporary Israel.” Angus Smith, Open Letters Review

 Goliger vividly illustrates the human urgencies propelling Arabs and Jews in all directions, and the emotional realities behind all the ideologies.” Deborah Yaffe, Jewish Independent

 “I am a better person for having read this book because I learned about a time, place and culture I knew so little of. I recommend Eva Salomon’s War to anyone who is curious about this era and likes a good page turner.” Joyce McPhee, apt.613

“I give this book 5 Stars. Illuminating. Transformative. Inspirational.” A reviewer on Amazon.com

I finished reading your book last night and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  When I finished the last page, I almost went right back to the first page and started it again....There are so many things that spoke to me about the story....” An enthusiastic reader

Though rooted in her Jewish heritage, Toni Goldblatt must wrestle with it too. The adult Toni, the courageous character that emerges in Gabriella Goliger’s first novel, has her own strength, complexity and loveliness.” Joy Kogawa, author of Obasan

A hauntingly familiar coming of age story, yet poignantly fresh and new. Not just in Toni owning her identity as a lesbian, but doing this in a family of Holocaust survivors in a new country where the message is to conform at all costs. An authentic, touching story.” Heather Menzies, author of Enter Mourning

Song of Ascent:

It is to Gabriela Goliger’s credit to have written stories about the Holocaust from a twenty-first century perspective. She has created a series of fascinating characters, speaking with diverse voices, now strident, now hushed, but never completely jarring. Using the short story form to frame what could effectively be called a novel, she manages to conjure up a sense of history from these echoing, constellating tales. A poignant, gripping read.” Journal of the Short Story in English, 38 | Spring 2002

“...an uncommonly beautiful piece of contemporary Holocaust literature. It is an intense book, moving in the simplicity of its images that are not bloodsoaked slices of remembrance but which, nevertheless, clearly make the point of how painful it is to survive and co-live with the weight of memory.” Federica K. Clementi, Jewish Federations of North America

A new writer of considerable skill. The stories are full of evocative image.” The Citizen

Goliger’s eye and voice are steady and true, and her view of the spiritual and psychological chaos the Jews endured after the Holocaust is clear.” Bookworld

A poetic and poignant collection.” Publishers Weekly

A thoroughly enjoyable read, somewhere between poetry and a novel.” Western Jewish Bulletin
