For all the praise, I cannot find an entry for him in Google, except for
a newspaper article. Specifically, I am looking for titles of novels and
short story collections. Worrisome is that I also got nothing from
Amazon when I ran his name through.

His surname is spelled Burg. And his first name might sometimes be

Israeli politician whose son is Avraham, currently or recently in the
I suggest the Google arguments "Josef Burg" yiddish.
