Isaac Bashevis Singer: A Life
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIsaac 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 a consummate storyteller and probably the greatest Yiddish writer of the twentieth century.
