When it first appeared in Story magazine in 1938, Address Unknown was an immediate social phenomenon and artistic sensation. The novella's penetrating focus afforded an unprecedented vision of the horror and grief wrought by the Nazi regime, and within a mere ten days, every issue of Story had been snatched up, copies were circulating around the world, and Kressmann Taylor had become an overnight literary legend. Published in book form by Simon & Schuster a year later, Address Unknown sold fifty thousand copies -- an astronomical figure for the time.

Reissued by Story Press five years ago, in the midst of a dark resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe, Kressmann Taylor's work has already riveted a new era of readers. Now available for the first time in trade paperback, this series of fictional letters between a Jewish art dealer living in San Francisco and his former business partner, who has returned to Germany, spans a mere sixty-four pages, but its searing tale speaks volumes.

Sobre el autor (1995)

Kressmann Taylor was an undiscovered writer before the 1938 publication of "Address Unknown". She worked as an advertising copywriter between 1926 & 1928, then devoted herself full-time to three small children. Now deceased, Kressman Taylor said that "Address Unknown" was based on a few real-life letters, but that the ultimate story emerged largely through discussions with her husband, Elliott Taylor.
