9780099285489: The Family Moskat (Vintage Classics)

In a magnificent work of the imagination, Isaac Bashevis Singer brings to life the decline of the prosperous Moskat family, Polish Jews living in Warsaw between the dawn of the twentieth century and the gloom of 1939. On a vast breathtaking background, saints mingle with swindlers, tough Zionists with mystic philosophers, and medieval rabbis rub shoulders with ultra-modern painters. A novel on the grandest scale, "The Family Moskat" is a work of high entertainment and a deeply moving chronicle of people's disappointments and passions.

Product Description:

In the topsy-turvy years between the dawn of the twentieth century and the dark days of 1939, the Moskat family have battled on. But like many Jewish families in Poland they can no longer turn a blind eye to the dwindling of their fortunes. In Warsaw, where saints mingle with swindlers, tough Zionists argue with mystic philosophers, and medieval rabbis rub shoulders with ultra-modern painters, life is inexorably changing. Secularism and war inch nearer and the family Moskat clings on.

Review:

"A masterpiece, a triumph of realism, precisely finished, exactly located, a miraculous marriage of accuracy and imagination" ( Sunday Times)

"A loving and detailed portrait of Jewish life in Eastern Europe before the Holocaust." ( Globe & Mail)

"His greatest work." (Ian Samson Guardian '1000 novels everyone must read')

"Whatever region his writing inhabits, it is blazing with life and actuality" (New York Review of Books Ted Hughes)

"He makes most contemporary practitioners of the art of fiction look like singers with only one song" ( Guardian)
