Tevye the Milkman, a uniquely charming Jewish novel from Tsarist rural Russia, provided the principal character for Fiddler on the Roof. Here we have the full story, with all its Jewish humor, wisdom, and despair. The central character, Tevye the milkman, goes around the community in the Russian countryside delivering milk and cheese but also dispensing wisdom from the Talmud laced with his common-sense view of life. Funny, enriching, but also moving, this remarkable little Jewish classic will charm all who hear it, especially in the reading by veteran audiobook performer Neville Jason.
