About this title: Finally available in English, the great Yiddish writer's account of a neglected time and place. In daily accounts, Ansky details his struggles: to raise funds; to lobby and bribe at the tsar's court; to procure and transport food, medicine, and money to the ravaged Jewish towns. This story is at once powerful and poignant, a rare and invaluable addition to the historical record.
