IBS is above all a great storyteller. This is a glimpse into his history of Pre WW2 Jewish community, both the Polish Jewish orthodox rural Hasidic traditions and the Warsaw Yiddish literati. Other stories deal with the Jewish refugee community in United States pre and post war where he was one of the pre eminent Yiddish authors. His stories are fantastical, bawdy, as well as deeply involved in the religious and philosophical.

The more bizarre, the better. Best read whilst a Kabalas album is playing in the background.
