The Spinoza of Market Street
Nov 08, 2014
A simply wonderful collection of stories set in the long-vanished Jewish villages of eastern Europe, first published in 1963. Richly drawn, passionate, lively and witty tales of everyday lives, with love, lust, faith, ambition and tragedy on vivid display, often all within the same story. For me the highlight is the novella-length "The Destruction of Kreshev", the story of a doomed marriage (and doomed village) narrated by none other than the devil himself (!), but everything here ranges from very good to excellent.
