    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 more of Sholem Aleichem's works, and wishing that I had a way to experience the conversational style in the original yiddish.

    I read most of this. It’s highly uneven from a modern sensibility. All the women are nagging shrews. Many of the stories have a thread of self-hating stereotyping (all Jews are obsessed with money, for example), which was just unbearable. The Tevye stories were probably my favorite, and I was charmed that the language from some of the stories was used verbatim in Fiddler On the Roof. :)

    Some of these are hard to read, and some are completely bewitching. I'm glad I read them, anyway.

    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 anymore 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 more 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.
