Tevye the Dairyman and The Railroad Stories
Tevye the Dairyman and The Railroad Stories | Sholem Aleichem
2 posts | 2 read | 6 to read
Of all the characters in modern Jewish fiction, the most beloved is Tevye, the compassionate, irrepressible, Bible-quoting dairyman from Anatevka, who has been immortalized in the writings of Sholem Aleichem and in acclaimed and award-winning theatrical and film adaptations. And no Yiddish writer was more beloved than Tevyes creator, Sholem Rabinovich (18591916), the Jewish Mark Twain, who wrote under the pen name of Sholem Aleichem. Beautifully translated by Hillel Halkin, here is Sholem Aleichems heartwarming and poignant account of Tevye and his daughters, together with the Railroad Stories, twenty-one tales that examine human nature and modernity as they are perceived by men and women riding the trains from shtetl to shtetl. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Looking forward to a trip to #NewYork with my mom! Hadestown and Fidler Afn Dakh are definitely happening- and both have great literary source material to dig into before we go. #LetsTravelAugust #seemoretheatre

I've been offline for a bit because we went to two weddings this past weekend. 🎉🎂But I'm back now! I saw a bunch of posts about Fiddler on the Roof today, and look what I found at the library the other day! I still need to read these. #tbr
