My Father, Sholom Aleichem by Marie Waife-Goldberg

My Father, Sholom Aleichem by Marie Waife-Goldberg

$ 22.00

This memoir of Sholom Aleichem by his youngest daughter is at once the first complete biography of a great writer and a warm and charming evocation of family life in pre-Revolutionary Russia.

Aleichem's ebullient nature and intellectual civility, triumphing over early hardships, over ill health and the anguish of world crisis, pervaded even his will: he asked that the anniversary of his death be celebrated by reading "one of the very merry" of his stories, so that his name might be "recalled with laughter."
