“Singer’s deep-running narrative makes a microcosm of the Warsaw ghetto. Reminiscent in scope of the great Russian novels of the nineteenth century, his novel moves with the leisure of abundance—eddying, pausing, plunging. Its surface ripples with passages of delicate description, trenchant dialogue and precisely observed detail; its depths roll forward with the heavy, hidden surge of life itself.”—Time
“The Family Moskat, although it deals with an era that has been buried in the ashes of the Holocaust, retains its strength, and has an appeal that will fascinate all readers.” –Detroit Jewish News
