Write The First Customer Review

Not a Simple Story presents the modern Hebrew writer Shmuel Yosef Agnon in a new light--as an artist cum thinker whose novels and short stories manifest a deep understanding of the social and political crisis at the heart of modern Jewish life. Based on a close reading of Agnon's seminal novel A Simple Story, Sharon Green's scholarly critique offers students of Jewish studies a unique opportunity to penetrate the literary enigma Agnon has represented for almost a century.
