Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Manor is an epic of Polish Jewry and of the mystery of human hope . . . a great book." —The Boston Globe



"What he has achieved [in The Estate] is a sense of impetuousness, the fury, the bursting energy in the hearts of these Jews. . . . Tragedy is followed by new sorrows; joy by new joys."—Newsday



"The author's apparently inexhaustible psychological fantasy and insight have created a microcosm, or rather a well-populated micro-chaos, out of independent and graphically convincing figures." —Professor Lars Gyllensten, Les Prix Nobel, 1978

It's no wonder he won the Nobel Prize for literature. These novels are still relevant in a world where our identities and comfort levels are always under assault by rapid economic and social change.

Pulitzer Prize winner, a masterpiece. The style, dialogue , and characters are outstanding. Feels like you are right there as an observer.. This extraordinary book is timeless. I read a lot, and this is one of my reads of all time.. Cannot wait to read the rest so his works. This is called his masterpiece, and surely is.
I searched for Pulitzer Price winners and sure found one!

By Emily Fisher on January 5, 2014
Format: Paperback
This book contains sex, greed, faith, despair, crime, politics...all in an epic multi-generational story. Also it contains lots of buckwheat groats, an ostrich plume or two, and descriptions of life in late nineteenth century Poland among the Hasidim, a degenerate count, Jews who have lost their faith but remain somehow Jews, transatlantic crossings, late nineteenth century New York City's lower East Side, and some unforgettable flawed yet heroic characters, including the ever-lusty Klara, a saintly Rabbi, and the intelligent and doubting Ezriel. Would make a great tv mini-series (PBS are you listening?)
