    משוגע eBook ✓ ´ ePUB stroyki.pro משוגע ebok, משוגע PDFThe opening line is fantastic It happened than once that someone I thought had died in Hitler's camps suddenly turned up alive and wellI just wasn't feeling the rest of it though I've read a number of his short stories and really liked them but this story is not really very interesting to me It also seems to have lost something in translation which I suppose is to be expected but disappointing all the same There's one part in particular where Max chides Aaron for addressing him by the formal 'you' when he should be using 'thou' but since we don't speak that way in English any Aaron continues using 'you' and I suppose we're meant to understand that

    משוגע eBook ✓ ´ ePUB stroyki.pro משוגע ebok, משוגע PDFMeshugah is a Yiddish word that can mean crazy senseless insane And that is exactly the right title for this work by the late Issac Bashevis Singer For what we have here is several links between friend and family relations of outrageous craziness a comedy of post war post holocaust semi religiousJewishatheistic muddled vision of life And it circles around an even muddled

    משוגע eBook ✓ ´ ePUB stroyki.pro משוגע ebok, משוגע PDFMeshugah is another book I discovered at yet another used bookstore going out of business sale It sat on my shelf for a while and I am so glad I finally read it It is not Singer’s best work but it does capture you and pull you along While I was surprised at how many Yiddish words I know thanks to my dear parents z’’l and how many references to Jewish history and the Torah and Talmud I understood it could use a glossary It’s another book that makes me grab my phone to look up things But what I really wish is that it had an accompanying recipe book

The narrator goes around with a lot of girls enamoured of his writing He has an affair with a lady who worked the oldest profession to save herself from Nazi atrocities He goes to Israel He returns to New YorkEven if there are no answers to the big uestion post Holocaust of WTF there are no answers here to any of the smaller uestions either Why all the affairs with married women? What is it with Jewish anarchists? Maybe it's asking a lot but this guy won the Nobel Prize for Literature ok? A Jewish thought leader in his time Who better to tackle a big sensitive subject? I felt this story was lazy Strange even exciting things happened but th
