The Yellow Scarf

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Yellow is bold, resistant and grievous. Yellow is fat with the sun’s ferocity. Yellow sustains and destroys life. At Lillah’s funeral her women friends screened a film — her last public performance as it turned out — in which she carried the yellow scarf aloft like a pennant, tossed it skywards and pulled it down, stamped on it and threw it up again; in which she danced like a triumphant Ashkenazi who could have slain Goliath. Nothing could be further from the truth.
