I am amazed at the output coming from this one mans fertile mind. he is an artesian well of literature that simply will not stop flowing.
I only wish I had discovered him at an earlier age.

a collection of stories by a great writer. these categories don't relate. they look silly. some fantasy, some people, read it, can't go wrong. stories you'll remember. meaningful relationships. you'll end up wishing you were "Gimple the Fool"

Great story, too. Highly recommend

Great literature, and excellent service. I do resent being told how to compse this and how many words I must write to have my message relayed. Whoever planned this bit of nonsense is in another league entirely, and should find another line of work --- now!

Singer takes us on a journey through time depicting the lives of Jewish peasants living in Frampol, a village closest to the Polish city of Zamosc. Some are quite hysterical, some are quite dark!

Through these stories you get a sense of how fragile life really was for these people, many of whom did not even own shoes! These people gripped onto anything that would help them make sense of this world and provide some hope for the difficult times. There are heros and there are villains. The book is very entertaining and gave me some food for thought as I reflect about my own life.

I bought this book because I'm trying to read more literary Nobel prizewinners, since most of them are from outside the United States, and even in translation, the perspectives of writers such as Coetzee, Marquez, et al have been unique and mind-broadening. But with this collection by Singer, I was left feeling at a bit of a loss. Set in pre-industrial rural Eastern Europe, the twelve short stories reminded me of much earlier fiction like the Canterbury Tales and Don Quixote. Those classics are universally acclaimed, and yet I didn't enjoy them much either, for similar reasons: they're largely plot-or-event-driven, narrated in the distant 3rd person, with little character development or introspection.

I would recommend these stories more as a historical portrait of Jewish life and culture in a bygone age, rather than on their stylistic merits or ability to prompt self-reflection. What I couldn't help noticing was that unlike with most books I read, I did not feel compelled to write down a single quotation. Now no doubt some of the fault is mine as a reader; perhaps I am too much a product of my time. But to answer the question left in my mind about Singer's greatness, and discover the reason for his award, I think I will have to read some of his other work.
When I first learn about this book, I was in college. At first I thought that Gimpel the Fool would be like some of the other stories that I have read by authors like him from the past. The moment I read the first twenty-three pages, I immediately fell in love with this book. The author delivered his point across and everything with this time period human history. During this time period in college, I was going to quiet writing short and long stories of my own due to something going on at the time. Anyways, when I was reading this book it immediately made me want to continue writing my stories once again. The people within this book came to life as it displayed some of the many challenges that a person faces on a small scale to others, while being something rather bigger to that individual. I am the author of the book called Adrian & Jade In Queen Lara Vega's Secret Roses Volume 1 my characters experiences hard times and understanding that life isn't going to help you but yourself. This is why this book became one of my personal favorites.
