great gift great little book

by Elaine H on Jan 5, 2012

The personality of this author and his attitudes comes through loud and clear in this little book that portrays the lives of Jews in the pre-holocaust, world. Roth was part of the Haskala, the 19th Century Jewish Enlightenment along with Sholom Alechem and Peretz. He wrote many novels. But this is a journalistic jem! Roth died in 1939.
