    When you have read this book, you will know why many Jews refer to Sholom Aleichem not as "the great Jewish humorist," but rather as one of "the greatest writers of our time." There are short stories in this book too: "If I Were Rothschild," "The Littlest of Kings," and a dozen others that display Sholom Aleichem's wonderful storytelling gift. Sholom Aleichem (Hebrew greeting meaning "Peace be unto you!") was born near Pereyaslav, Ukraine, and settled in the United States two years before his death. The most popular and beloved of all Yiddish writers, he wrote with humor and tenderness about the Yiddish-speaking Jews of Eastern Europe and won the title "the Jewish Mark Twain".

    Sholom Aleichem began writing the book in , when he still lived in Europe, and it was the last book he worked on before his death in New York City The last chapter is unfinished. The plot may sound a bit gloomy, but actually it is a charming book, written in the mischievous and irrepressible voice of young Mottel. Center stage was Sholom Aleichem’s year-old granddaughter, Bel Kaufman, who introduced a clip from the forthcoming documentary “Memories Author: Masha Leon.

    Sholom Aleichem, the th anniversary of whose birth is currently being celebrated, is no stranger to ions from his work published in earlier issues include: “Journalism in the New Kasrilevke” (July ), “Sholom Aleichem in Sickness” (October ), and “Sholom Aleichem in Exile” (December ).   Free kindle book and epub digitized and proofread by Project Gutenberg.

This memoir of Sholom Aleichem by his youngest daughter is at once the first complete biography of a great writer and a warm and charming evocation of family life in pre-Revolutionary gh critics in many countries have commented voluminously on the world that Sholom Aleichem created in his stories -- that world of simple villages, of humor and wisdom 3/5.

My mother smacked me, and my father wiped my eyes, and promised to buy me a better, and bigger and handsomer watch than the one I broke. But the more my father praised the watch he was going to buy for me, the more I cried for the other, the old watch.

When my father was not looking, my mother wept silently for the old house. I handed in the manuscript of my biography to my editor literally hours before my wife went into labor and gave birth to our first child.
