In the first English translation of her elegant fictional memoir Una sola muerte numerosa, Strejilevich combines autobiography, documentary journalism, fiction, and poetry to express the "choir of voices" of the more than 30,000 souls who were imprisoned and abused. She engages the reader in the history of a bloody military coup and state-sanctioned anti-Semitism, exploring themes of exile, identity, and violence. Above all, A Single, Numberless Death is Nora Strejilevich's gripping story of survival.

"Shifting from present to a past of horror in the late seventies, and an even remoter past of fond family memories, Nora Strejilevich mixes quotes from [General Jorge Rafael] Videla and [Admiral Emilio] Massera with CONADEP records and poetic fragments to convey a full picture of [Argentina's infamous Dirty War].... Truly praiseworthy." - Buenos Aires Herald "A hymn to the resistance and the spiritual power of human beings, this text is also a heartrending and effective condemnation of injustice." - Andres Avellaneda, University of Florida
