Overview

The Manor and The Estate—combined in this one-volume edition—bold tales of Polish Jews in the latter half of the nineteenth century, a time of rapid industrial growth and radical social change that enabled the Jewish community to move from the ghetto to prominent positions within Polish society.

This one volume edition portrays, in Singer's own words, "the epoch between the Polish insurrection of 1863 and the end of the nineteenth century."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The author's apparently inexhaustible psychological fantasy and insight have created a microcosm, or rather a well-populated micro-chaos, out of independent and graphically convincing figures." —Professor Lars Gyllensten, Les Prix Nobel, 1978
