With the late Isaac Bashevis Singer's characteristic wit and self-awareness, The Certificate examines the lives of Polish Jews in the context of the sweeping political and intellectual events of Europe in the 1920s. A young Jewish writer arrives in Warsaw in 1922 and becomes involved with several young women, plunging him into romantic, political and philosophical turmoil.
"Singer is the most magical of writers, transforming reality into art with seemingly effortless sleight of hand. His deceptively spare prose has a pristine clarity that is stunning in its impact."
--The New York Times
"[Singer's] triumph here is much like Dostoyevsky's in his later years when he wrote A Raw Youth and tapped the mad feel of his teens.... Done with gusto and panache."
--Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
"Vintage Singer, a welcome addition to his oeuvre."
