Author(s): Isaac Bashevis Singer
'He scampered over rooftops, swam in deep water, leapt from balconies.' Set in the vanished world of the shtetl of nineteenth-century eastern Europe, this spellbinding fable tells the story of Yasha: magician, mesmerist, juggler, sword swallower, master of escape - and breaker of hearts.
Isaac Bashevis Singer (1904-91) was the author of many novels, stories, children's books, and a memoir. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1978.
