A marvelous biography
This book, written with intelligence, verve, and a deep knowledge of the man and his time, captivates the reader from its first sentence. Jeremy Dauber gives us not only the biography of this remarkable man,Sholem Aleichem,but also a picture of the world into which he was born and an understanding of how that world changed during his lifetime. I recommend this book to everyone, whether or not they have had any previous acquaintance with the works of Sholem Aleichem. It is a gem.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

An important biography of a great Jewish writer!
Jeremy Dauber has brought Sholem Aleichem to life! He has combined a fresh biography of Sholem Aleichem with an astute evaluation of his contribution to Jewish literature and drama and to world literature and drama.Was this review helpful?
