babel writes about jewish life in odessa, the home of my paternal grandmother's family (my great-grandparents left after the 1905 pogrom, which babel also survived). his stories are funny and cruel and worth reading on their own merits, but part of the enjoyment for me is definitely the insights into a tiny slice of jewish and personal history.

The input I've heard about Babel seems to be spot-on: there's never an extraneous word; there's never too little. This guy was the master of the short story. Read him!

The best stories were the one's describing the narrator's childhood in pre-Revolutionary Odessa.
