Description

Isaac Bashevis SInger brought the vibrant milieu of pre-Holocaust Polish Jewry to the English-speaking world through his subtle psychological insight, deep sympathy for the eccentricities of Jewish folk custom and unerring feel for the heroism of everyday life. His novels, including "The Family Moskat and Enemies: A Love Story" and his short stories such as "Yentl" and "Gimpel the Fool" prove him to be a consummate storyteller and one of the greatest Yiddish writers of the 20th century.
