Kadimah Melbourne is bringing his iconic book, "Scraps of Heaven" to life.
Scraps Of Heaven celebrates the Post-war immigrant, working class suburb of Carlton in the 50’s that was then a home to many migrant families trying to begin new lives and make sense of the old.
The novel portrays Carlton as it was, a cauldron of multiculturalism, a vibrant neighbourhood populated by newly arrived Italian, Greek and Jewish migrants many of them were Holocaust survivors.
The accompanying audio book was produced during successive COVID lockdowns in 2021 and 2022 by Evelyn Krape.
