Book Description Hill and Wang, 1965. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Hardcover, second printing, xii + 236pp. B&w illustrations by Mendel Reif, translation by Leonard Wolf. Ex-library, marked "withdrawn", internal and external library ownership & inventory markings (stamps, labels, inserts), in a protective mylar cover. According to the date-due slip the book was only checked out once. Pages are very slightly age-toned, clean, free of foxing, no readily noticeable creasing. Unmarked text, firm secure binding. Dust jacket shows moderate scuffing, short edge-nicks, shelfworn marks. --- Itzik Manger has created a tender, soaring Jewish comédie humaine, a twentieth-century mingling of the picaresque and the mystical. The novel moves swiftly from settings in legend and fantasy to a little Jewish town in Eastern Europe. The story derives from an old tradition in Jewish folklore: children before birth live in Paradise and, just before they are born, an angel taps them on the nose and thus makes them forget their stay in Paradise. The narrator, Shmuel-Aba Abervo, living in Paradise, is shown by his cunning angel-comrade Pisherl how to outwit the angel who will tap his nose just before he is born. The tap when given, therefore, fails to have the usual effect, and Shmuel is born with a full memory of his life in Paradise. The Paradise he describes to his astonished parents (he is born with the gift of speech) is filled with wonders, pranks, and merriment. Paradise, as he remembers it, is an exact mirror-image of the little town into which he is born. In brilliant imagery, Manger portrays King David's palace and tells of the sadness of the aging Bathsheba as the young maiden Abishag goes in to sleep with the King. In perhaps the most colorful episode of all, the sacrificial bull escapes from the Jewish into the Christian Paradise. It requires all of King Solomon's wisdom - and the help of Shmuel and his friend Pisherl - to bring the Messiah-Ox back. Such is Shmuel's story of Jewish Paradise: a story of unusual originality, of messianic mysticism mingled with bitter realism and stoic resignation. Like all great folk stories, it strums a melody of universal recognition. Seller Inventory # 004226
