The Wishing-Ring by Mendele Mokher Sefarim, Michael Wex

The Wishing-Ring by Mendele Mokher Sefarim, Michael Wex

$ 29.95

In this work Michael Wex renders the time-honored tale with the skill and ease of a modern storyteller and humorist. Abramovitsh's artistry lies not in the plot but in the descriptions and ever-shifting narrative voice. Sometimes the narrator (Mendele the Book Peddler) speaks from within the shtetl and sometimes from outside; and often he interweaves the high rhetorical prose of Hershl himself, reborn by the novel's end as Heinrich Cohen.
