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.

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.
