Synopsis: Singer's first colleciotn of stories, Gimpel the Fool, is a landmark of world literature and attracted international attention when it was first published in 1957. The title story, beautifully translated by Saul Bellow, follows the exploits of gimpel, an ingenuous baker, who is universally deceived but declines to retaliate. Other protagonists are not so innocent. Hodel, of "The Gentleman from Cracow, " is wed to Ketev Mriri, Chief of the Devils, and Nathan, of "The Unseen," leaves his wife for a demon in the form of a young woman. Enlightened or condemned, all characters inhabit the pre-World War II ghettos of Poland, and take shape in Singer's distinctive prose.

About the Author: Isaac Bashevis Singer (1904-91) was the author of many novels, stories, children's books, and memoirs. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1978.

Book Description Farrar, Straus & Giroux, New York, 1957. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Reprint. 1979 13th printing (the year Singer won the Pulitzer Prize). Signed I B Singer without inscription on front endpaper - he sometimes signed in this manner, sometimes with his first name and middle initial, and sometimes with his full name. Crease to bottom edge of jacket, faint crease down front jacket flap, jacket lightly toned. 205 pp. When Isaac Bashevis Singer won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1979, the Swedish Academy praised his "impassioned narrative art which, with roots in a Polish-Jewish cultural tradition, brings universal human conditions to life." But Singer himself says, "I never sit down to write to make a better world. I consider myself an entertainer." These four stories -- "Gimpel the Fool", "Esther Kreindel the Second", "The Spinoza of Market Street", and "The Black Wedding" -- are infused with Singer's wit and imagination, wisdom and humor.Keywords: LITERATURE JEWISH JUDAICA SHORT STORIES COLLECTION COLLECTED WORKS GIMPEL THE FOOL ISAAC BASHEVIS SINGER SIGNED.
