Editorial Reviews

"Combining fiction and documentary to follow the fate of numerous characters over the course of several years, her trilogy carries the amplitude of a Victorian three-decker novel: Her 1,000 pages are filled with Dickensian characteristics, as well as elements from the Yiddish masters: Sholom Aleichem, I. L. Peretz and Mendele Mocher Seforim. . . . The University of Wisconsin Press is to be congratulated for publishing this monumental tribute." -- Michael Greenstein, in the Toronto Globe and Mail
