The Red Magician
was the first novel ever published by distinguished fantasy author Lisa Goldstein, her first step in an acclaimed 30-year career. Yet The Red Magician
has always been more than just a stepping-stone. The winner of the 1983 National Book Award (then called the American Book Award), it has proven itself timeless, continuing to captivate readers with the poignant, heartrending story of a young girl named Kicsi who struggles to survive in the midst of the Holocaust, and the mysterious “red magician” who may hold her only way to escape.
