About this title

Synopsis:

THE MAGICIAN OF LUBLIN (orig. published in print in 1960) tells the story of Yasha, a talented magician who performs throughout Poland in the last 1800’s. He has the talent to pick any lock, escape any barrier. A non-observant Jew, Yasha finds that his abilities to juggle before an audience extend to the lives he must juggle off-stage. While his religious, dutiful wife waits for him at home, his many mistresses eagerly await his next trip to the city.

Yasha Mazur, the main character, is a Jewish Don Juan, consumed with restlessness and expressing it through a myriad of affairs. Caught between shtetl values and theatrical sophistication, Yasha is confronted with the greatest challenge of his life. How he escapes, and ultimately finds his own true self, is a parable of man’s ongoing search for personal meaning.

From the Publisher:

Like one of his mystical characters dancing between worlds of reality and fantasy, Isaac Bashevis Singer’s literary legacy – ten years after the Nobel Laureate passed away – is being reborn.

Jewish Contemporary Classics, Inc. has now published THE MAGICIAN OF LUBLIN, one of Bashevis Singer’s most famous novels, on as a six-cassette unabridged audiobook.

Veteran narrator and Broadway star Larry Keith reads this wonderfully crafted story of promiscuity and redemption, moving effortlessly among the voices of housewives, thieves and professors. The book is introduced by Bea Arthur, star of television’s “The Golden Girls.”
