The City in the Moonlight

The City in the Moonlight

Stories of the Old-Time Lithuanian Jews

By Dovid Katz

Translated by Barnett Zumoff

Be the first to review this product

Dovid Katz has written dozens of short stories that depict the life and culture of the old-time Lithuanian Jews (Litvaks), especially their misnagdicreligious tradition and psyche, which differed greatly from that of the chasidim, whose culture is far more familiar to most American Jews. He set himself the task of redressing the balance by masterfully and immersing himself in the long-lost milieu that he brings to life on these pages. The present volume comprises 13 of his most compelling
and accessible stories, translated into English by Barnett Zumoff, America's leading translator of Yiddish literature.
