    David Vogel has long been regarded as a leading figure of Hebrew literature. In the Sanatorium was his first published work of fiction, translated here into English for the first time. It is set in a charitable Jewish hospital for consumptives, where death is always close, desire is heightened, and breaking the rules is exciting. In his depiction of the sanatorium's hothouse atmosphere, Vogel masterfully portrays the far-reaching effects of the decadence that was so prevalent in early 20th century Europe. Written in 1932, Facing the Sea tells the story of a couple spending the summer on the French Riviera. Their idyllic holiday, however, ends up testing their relationship in ways they never thought possible. Deeply evocative of a bygone era, and intensely erotic, it shows Vogel at the height of his powers.
