Reviews:
  • energy breath
returned to sender .
very cheap thin pages - the ones that leaves ink-traces on your fingers !
  • Hellmaster
great book
  • Butius
This is a very fine collection of stories that reveal a culture now lost and a language that is being lost. Howe's introduction is excellent.
Warning: there is very little humor here.
  • Doktilar

I read the Gottman book years ago and recommend it highly to people with whom I do marriage prep. The last copy I sent to one of my grandnieces prior to her wedding.

Just want to get my two-cents in, 'cause I see this has very few reviews. It is a GREAT collection--a must-have, stories of the Shtetl. Even when I gave away many old books, I kept this one. I bought my brother this updated version several years ago, and he loved it. It has a spectrum from different authors, you can't miss with this one. Enjoy!!
This anthology contains the work of the most well- known of Yiddish storytellers from Shalom Aleichem to I.B. Singer. Among those whose work is included are I.L. Peretz, Opatoshu, Zalman Schneour, Israel Singer, Chaim Grade, Sholem Asch, Moishe Kulbak,

et.al.

Naturally the center is the shtetl of Eastern Europe, the world of disasters of the 'Shoah'. But there are also stories which touch upon the New World.

The collection contains what in my opinion is one of the finest stories in any language, I.B. Singer's " The Little Shoemakers"

Among the translators are Saul Bellow and Alfred Kazin.
