Library of World Fiction
“An epic of Polish Jewry and of the mystery of human hope . . . a great book.”
The Boston Globe
The Manor and The Estatecombined in this one-volume editionare bold tales of Polish Jews in the latter half of the nineteenth century, a time of rapid industrial growth and radical social change that enabled the Jewish community to move from the ghetto to prominence within Polish society.
“If Singer’s work can be said to have a single unifying theme, it may be . . . don’t understand the world, or yourself, or anyone else too quickly. No matter how much you think you know, there is more, always more.”
Gerald Jonas, The New York Times Book Review
