9780140053913: In My Father's Court

In this autobiographical work, specifically mentioned in Issac Bashevis Singer's Nobel Prize citation, Singer remembers his childhood in Warsaw, and especially the bet din, or Jewish Court, in his father's home on working-class Krochmalna Street. Advice seekers and petitioners making wills or seeking marriage settlements daily visit the rabbi in his study. In a world on the brink of modernity, Singer's gentle, learned father and his mother, equally pious but eminently practical, maintain a stubbornly traditional existence. In My Father's Court is a tribute to their efforts, and a fine evocation of life in early-twentieth century Warsaw.

About the Author:

Issac Bashevis Singer (1904-91) was the author of many novels, stories, children's' books and memoirs. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1978.

Review:

“The sort of book . . . only a writer at the height of his powers, firmly in command of his created world, his mind charged with vivid memories, can somehow shake effortlessly out of his sleeve . . . [The writing is] often close to the Biblical directness of feeling that Tolstoy prescribed for the 'universal art of the future.'” ―Raymond Rosenthal, The New Leader

“A world that no longer exists reaches us thorugh one of the greatest literary artists of our time.” ―Albert H. Friedlander, Saturday Review
