      Martin Green of Winnipeg is the force behind an unusual literary concept. He has translated a book called "On Foreign Soil", written by Falk Zolf. (Mr. Zolf is the father of well-known Canadian journalist, Larry Zolf.) The book tells a coming of age story, set during the First World War in Russia. The translation is designed to both tell the story, and at the same time, teach Yiddish.   Foreign Soil reviewed by Heather Taylor Johnson. Octo / mascara / 0 Comments Foreign Soil. Maxine Beneba Clark. Hachette Australia. Sydney, NSW, ISBN Reviewed by HEATHER TAYLOR JOHNSON. Sometimes we read prose – a novel, perhaps, or a short story – and we think I bet this writer is a poet, too, and then we turn to the page .

      The tensions of race and culture are prominent throughout the book, especially within intimate relationships. Interracial relationships examine otherness at the level of physical intimacy and the body becomes “foreign soil” for others to explore. A white woman sees a black man as her opportunity for “something remarkable.”.   The book is called Foreign Soil. Inside its covers, a desperate asylum seeker is pacing the hallways of Sydney's notorious Villawood detention centre, a seven-year-old Sudanese boy has found solace in a patchwork bike, an enraged black militant is on the warpath through the rebel squats of s Brixton, a Mississippi housewife decides to make 4/5(K).
