Memory Chalet is his first book to be published posthumously in November 2010 - it is also this author's first publication with us.

Memory Chalet is a book of memories unlike any other. Every essay portrays a life experience, from the scent of trains so dear to the author's heart to his Zionist youth in a kibbutz; from the magical Swiss hills to 1968 Paris; from cleaning ladies in Cambridge to French intellectuals....

Whatever he is remembering, Judt writes majestically. With an elegance of spirit, a dignified melancholy, a tuned sense of imagery, and a sparkling, humorous style. All accompanied by the cold realization that he is steadily dying…
