A most handsome first edition/first printing in unread Fine condition in alike dustjacket. Black cloth with very attractive paper boards. Slight discoloration to top edges. SIGNED by author and Nobel Laureate Isaac B. Singer.
Isaac Singer takes us back in time to the mid-Thirties, when he was a young man in Poland, struggling to eke out a living and dreaming of joining his brother in America. This is the tale of how he made that trip and found himself confronting a strange land where an uncertain future lay ahead (from the dust-jacket).
Singer is the seventh American and sole Yiddish writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, which he received in 1978; B&W and Color Illustrations.
