Author Bio
Isaac Bashevis Singer
When he was in his early 30s, Singer emigrated from Poland to the U.S., where he became a writer for the Jewish Daily Forward as well as a novelist and short-story writer. He wrote in Yiddish, but did many translations of his works into English. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1978. The son, grandson, and nephew of rabbis, Singer was trained in the Talmudic tradition, but broke from his religious past to follow in the literary footsteps of his older brother, Israel Joshua Singer (THE BROTHERS ASHKENAZI). Singer is perhaps most famous for short-stories about Jewish village life in Poland infused with supernatural and preposterous elements. "Gimpel the Fool" is considered his masterpiece of this genre. Many of his novels deal with the moral and cultural quandaries of Jewish émigrés living in New York. A portion of West 86th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue, has been designated by the city as Isaac Bashevis Singer Boulevard.
