Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“An astonishingly intimate record of a writer's inner wanderings.” —Marina Hirsch, The San Francisco Chronicle Review

“Isaac Bashevis Singer is exhilerating good company . . . His companions and loves, responding to a master's slightest nudge, bound out of his memory and onto the page.” —The New York Times Book Review
