Joseph Tomaras lives in southern Maine, and writes fiction, more or less speculative, some of which has been published. He is
currently engaged in translating Der Nister's full "Gedakht" collection of short stories (1922-23). He also reads voluminously in
Spanish, German, Portuguese, French, Modern Greek, Hebrew, and of course Yiddish. He tweets compulsively as @epateur, and blogs more rarely at skinseller.blogspot.com.
