Translated from the Yiddish by Curt Leviant. This volume is one of Isaac Bashevis Singer's most affecting autobiographical works. The stories in it, published serially in the Jewish Daily Forward, depict the beth din in his father's home on Krochmalna Street in Warsaw from a young boy's perspective. A unique institution, the beth din was a combined court of law, synagogue, school, and psychologist's office where people sought out the advice and counsel of a neighborhood rabbi. The 27 new stories gathered here were published in the Forward during the same period as those in the first volume; none of them were previously published in English. From earthy to the ethereal, these stories provide an intimate and powerful evocation of a bygone world. 216 pages, binding is quarter cloth. The jacket has a small spot on the front from a sticker. The black remainder mark on top is about 2" long. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
