Very pleased to see Paragraph used my photograph to accompany this beautiful story.' ....... if you ask me what the story is about, I will tell you that it's about a boy who has done well in an exam and goes to the market to buy pigeons for his dovecote. Simple as that. That's undeniably the plot of the story. But if you catch me at a different time, I will tell you that it's a story about the history of Jews in Russia, about Cossacks and antisemitism, about corruption and pogroms, about fragility and loss and love and loyalty and man's inhumanity to man'.
