Isaac Bashevis Singer: A Life By Janet Hadda
Publisher: Univ..ersity of Wisc..onsin Press 2003 | 272 Pages | ISBN: 0299186946 | PDF | 12 MB

Yiddish scholar and psychoanalyst Janet Hadda takes a bracingly unreverential look at the Nobel laureate too often viewed simplistically as a folksy chronicler of Jewish shtetl culture. Hadda's depiction of Isaac Bashevis Singer (1904-91) as a sophisticated, self-conscious artist won't surprise admirers of The Family Moskat, Yentl, and his other works of fiction. They will undoubtedly be dismayed, however, by her contention--with reasonable supporting evidence--that he was a cold, distant sibling, a cruel husband, and a capricious, manipulative womanizer. Hadda's warts-and-all portrait seems fair, though not overly generous.
