In his introduction to this volume, David G. Roskies reveals that Ansky's return to Mother Russia was accompanied by a profound renegotiation with his Hasidic heritage, the Yiddish language, and the Jewish historical imagination. The book also includes little-known works of autobiographical and fantastical prose fiction, as well as an excerpt from The Destruction of Galacia, Ansky's four-volume chronicle of the Eastern Front in the First World War.

This is the only audio-version in English of a lovely, mystical folk play from Eastern Europe. So thank goodness it's good! Although there's fine writing, music and nice production values, the real treat is the fine acting. It's a melencholy love story with supernatural and mystical implications.Was this review helpful?
