Here are nearly 200 stories in all—the full range of Singer's vision encompassing Old World shtetl and New World exile. Born in Poland in 1904 into a family of rabbis, Singer was raised in the traditional culture that was to be annihilated during World War II, and his haunting stories testify to the richness of that vanished world. Singer's Old World stories reveal a wild, mischievous, often disturbing supernaturalism evocative of both local storytelling traditions and dark undercurrents born of Singer's own concerns and obsessions.
As a special feature, the boxed set also includes Isaac Bashevis Singer: An Album, a compact illustrated biography accompanied by appreciations of and anecdotes about Singer from some of today's leading writers, including Cynthia Ozick, Jonathan Safran Foer, Francine Prose, Nicholas Dawidoff, and Joyce Carol Oates, among others.
