The great master of the short- story May 9, 2008
Why is Singer such a great story writer? One answer is that he really does tell stories which make the reader want to know what is going to happen next to the characters. But it is much more than that. His stories are filled with surprise. His characters are true originals, often so unexpectedly eccentric one cannot have any real idea of what they are going to do next. The world he writes in especially when he writes about the world of Polish Jewry is an incredible mixture of the old and the new. Longing , nostalgia, sadness, wonder, curiosity, lust, love pervade Singer's stories. He is perhaps of all writers I know the most Jewish. But the stories also speak powerfully to non- Jewish readers as they reveal the heart and soul of the human being and human condition. Even when he is not at his best (And I would argue the title story of this work is far from his best) he is very very good. And when he is good he is truly great. And what a pleasure to read.
