Editorial Reviews

Joe Stafford
The story of a young scholar who leaves an academic career in Europe to pursue the Zionist dream in Palestine in the late 19th century, this is the first audiobook in English from the Noble laureate. Accompanied by a glossary and readers' guide, the book delves into great themes in a haunting, dreamlike story delivered with appropriate coolness by veteran reader Waldren.

Comic mastery...richness and depth...tenderness and beauty

From The Critics
The late S.Y. Agnon, Israel's Nobel Laureate and acknowledge master of modern Hebrew fiction, is the author of more than 24 novels, novellas, and short story collections, was a master storyteller who aptly and amply demonstrated the literary abilities of the Hebrew language. Betrothed (written in 1943) is set in Palestine, in 1909, where a gentle scholar who studies the sea encounters a beautiful girl in the grip of a mysterious illness. This engaging story was first translated into English by Walter Lever in 1966 and is now available as an unabridged, flawlessly produced and narrated audiobook which will splendidly introduce a whole new generation to a master craftsman of enduring literature.
