This edition is an authentic reproduction of the 1936 edition of Israel Joshua Singer's novel YOSHE KALB, in original Yiddish language. "YOSHE KALB is the story of a lovable young mystic's fall from grace, of his sin and suffering, of his terrible meekness and resignation, of his silence (by way of penance) under false accusations, and the complications, including that of dual personality, which this gives rise to. All these and other strands are skillfully woven together into a gorgeous tapestry, hung against a background of Chassidic life with its turbulence, coarseness, and superstition relieved by felicitous touches of humor." - Maximilian Hurwitz
