    A thoroughly enjoyable selection of stories from the author who inspired Fiddler on the Roof The stories read as though told verbally, using a conversational style It was amazing to see how completely the characters accepted the pervasive anti semitism surrounding their shtetl existence as though it were simply inevitable, incorporating it even into their humor The selection left me wanting to read of Sholem Aleichem s works, and wishing that I had a way to experience the conversational style in the original yiddish.

    From my late parents bookshelf I found myself reading with an eye toward figuring out whether this is indeed the life my grandparents lead Perhaps somewhat, but I believe my maternal set had already drifted away from some of the traditional religious practices before leaving Russia in the early 1900 s At any rate, many of these are stories about schlemiels, hapless, unlucky men hoping to improve their lives in some small but generally unattainable way None of the stories has a female protagonist The food sounds great

    easy to read, mostly less than 20 page short stories All a window into the life of Jews of eastern Europe who have been persecuted off and on for centuries because they stubbornly held to most all their beliefs and religious customs from the days of Moses, to exile in Babylon and throughout the world since Roman times and the rise of Christianity.All told with humor that in hindsight is so sad when we now know almost no Jews live this way any since the Holocaust wiped out over 90% of the whole population.

    If you want to know what it means to be an Ashkenazi or Russian Jew and how we possibly made it , read this collection I m so glad I pulled this volume randomly out of the shelves of my grandparents library I read a story every morning for a couple of weeks to lift my spirits and be able face the day.

    Sholem Aleichem is at his best describing life in the Pale It s a collection of stories than a novel Each story stands on its own.

    Wonderful Book, sometimes dull, sometimes sad, sometimes hilarious, sometimes thought provoking, worth the read.
