The Magician of Lublin By Isaac Bashevis Singer
Isaac Bashevis Singer
Isaac Bashevis Singer, Polish-born American writer of novels, short stories, and essays in Yiddish. He was the recipient in 1978 of the Nobel Prize for Literature. His fiction, depicting Jewish life in Poland and the United States, is remarkable for its rich blending of irony, wit, and wisdom, flavoured distinctively with the occult and the grotesque.
A deceptively sophisticated tale of sexual compulsion and one man’s flight from love.
