FROM THE PUBLISHER - Published in 1964 when Charyn was twenty-six years old, ONCE UPON A DROSHKY is a fairy tale-like story set in the Yiddish-American community of the Lower East Side. The narrator, Yankel Rabinowitz, tells the story in English that is heavily broken by Yiddish, creating a great comic effect. The novel centers on the relationship of a father and son: the father represents the old and embattled Yiddish community while the son's legalistic tendencies make him the prototypical American. Charyn draws heavily on experiences from his childhood in the Bronx for details of the Yiddish community. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory # 22476
