    It's been nearly 30 years since I last looked at this excellent collection of short stories but some of them still visit my thoughts regularly My favorite is the guy who seduces his neighbor by turning up in her bedroom one night and saying that he's a demon from Hell It's pitch black and she's not sure if she's dreaming or awake She gives him everything he wants and he tells her fantastic stories of the Infernal Realms The next night he comes back again same deal This goes on for yearsOne night he arrives as usual but he's feverish and can't perform The next night he fails to show up The day after she hears that the man upstairs has suddenly died; they're taking him off to be buried A sudden hypothesis crosses her mind but she can't uite believe itI think this kind of thing happens all the timeAnd if you imagined I was kidding

    Some of the finest short stories I have ever read and I have not read many Isaac Singer has an uncanny ability to merge realism with Jewish folklore and mythology I loved the way his focus always stays on people mostly the immigrant community but the background is not only its American setting but a vast Jewish experience The tales vary greatly in theme and content where the ancient always hover over the modern In my mind this book and Will Eisner's awesome graphic novel A Contract with God are soul cousins maybe because in both of them we clearly see where they are coming from I have come to know though I am not sure about its validity that in Judaism storytelling and spirituality often go hand in hand Singer with his sheer brilliance in storytelling held my attention till the very last page until I was saddened by the fact that there were no stories to go on He convinced me yet again that a good story told with great lucidity devoid of unnecessary complications can have great power over the reader That is how stories have survived and affected us over the centuries by being lucidLike a master he made me feel that I wasn't reading these tales but was being narrated to sitting cozily near a warm hearth while I happily listened to him like an awed child does to his grandfather's enthusiastic narration What was this treasure of a book doing in a second hand book shop in Mylapore?

    I’m just not a magic person Unless ‘wand’ has an obvious coarse connotation I don’t want one in my book I don’t want devils demons or invisible crowns of feathers in pillows I don’t care if the spell is portrayed in an elegant way by Singer or a basic way for children by Rowling I hereby give up on Singer this is my second stab at him and I’m not finishing this one This despite the fact that it isn’t all magic driven The second story ‘A Day in Coney Island’ avoids all that – and I know the magic realist cliue are going to jump all over that statement and claim this story for themselves too Well I don’t think coins coming out of slots counts as magic So thereRest here

    Outstanding collection of short stories Singer creates such great characters and situations His books are always a pleasure to read

  5. says:

    I liked the opening stories so much I decided to sparse out the rest of the collection and just read one a day However toward the middle of this collection I realized that many felt similar A character is met in a cafeteria and that character tells his story Some of these stories fell into the magic realism territory which is a genre that's becoming one of my favorites And because of my lack of understanding the finer points of the jewish religion there were comments and storylines I just didn't understand I'll own up to that and say that's one reason I didn't enjoy some stories as much as others In summary I found a few 5 star stories most of them at the beginning of the collection many 3 star stories that I enjoyed but felt they were too similar and a few stories that simply baffled me thus my 3 star rating If you're a student of Jewish history and religion you might find this to be a satisfying collection than I did But if you're like me and just looking for a nice set of short stories I always like to have a collection in progress this works just fine I liked it

    magical stories from a lost eraPolish Jewry under Russian rule the Jews in post 1918 Poland the exiled survivors of the Holocaust in New York all these are times and people of the past Nothing of them really survives Yiddish is but a pale shadow of its former self So even the words here are like pink clouds of last week's sunset How they struggled How they loved fought schemed and sacrificed the writers the revolutionaries the holy men the pretenders the warped geniuses the dispossessed Unless we have a writer of the stature of Isaac Bashevis Singer all this is gone forever We are left with dusty tomes the photos of Roman Vishniac and some Holocaust museums with their tragic rooms telling of mass murder But if I want to know what the world of my ancestors your neighbors' ancestors was like you have to read Singer; this book or any other Devils and nasty spirits haunt the pages along with believers in occult rituals and spirit mediums A woman under a curse loses everything and finally disappears herself The ferment that shook Jewish life in Poland during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries lives here new ideas of democracy Communism euality of the sexes secular life shook traditional Judaism still sunk in prayers study of the Talmud and the eternal wait for the Messiah Sons full of new energy return to the village from America full of plans only to find that somnolence rules supreme Tradition is happy But doomed In America the surviving writers and would be writers hang out in cafes and delicatessens talking away their days over tea and rice pudding It's a far cry from Hemingway Some lecture write publish others only argue and go home to cramped apartments in decaying Manhattan buildings Lovers lose their chances have their older mistresses die in their beds they fade come to life and fade again There is no explaining why people do things everything is contradictory when it comes to behavior The ironies of Fate rule supreme We read of endless permutations of the human condition In A CROWN OF FEATHERS we not only find Jewish life and tradition but we find all humanity represented just as in the work of the world's finest writers That is appropriate because Singer was one of the world's finest writers If you haven't read him you can start with this book None of the stories are bad but some are breathtakingly amazingly good

    Magnificent collection my favorite so far from Singer I prefer the New York stories over the Old World ones and this collection has of those The New York stories have a very poignant atmosphere of alienation a sense of discomfort with the world great sadness mixed with humor and resignation Most of them take place in the years after the Holocaust and there is a condemnation of God and His ways throughout these stories often conveyed with a few words in passing There is a persistent sense of doom fate and a dread that if there's an after world it could be the same or worse than this one The other great fear is that there is nothing after death just a total erasure and this of course heightens to a great degree the pointlessness of life From the story Neighbors In the years I knew him he told me many lies Countless women threw themselves into his arms socialites stars of the Metropolitan Opera famous authoresses ballet dancers actresses Each time Morris Terkeltoyb traveled to Europe on vacation he returned with a list of fresh amorous adventures Once he showed me a love letter in handwriting I recognized as his own He wasn't even ashamed to include in his stories scenes taken from world literature Actually he was a lonesome old bachelor with a sick heart and one kidney He himself seemed unaware of the missing kidney; I knew about it from a relative of hisThat paragraph has a great range of humanity in it from pathos to comedy with tragedy looming large over it all Singer spent much of his time in the cafeterias of the Upper West side listening and talking with Jewish immigrants I'm sure that many of his stories came directly from these encountersFrom The BeardOnce when I edited a small literary magazine he brought me a story which began 'The day was cloudy and the sky loyal' When I asked him what he meant by 'loyal' his good eye looked at me with anger and suspicion and he exclaimed 'Don't bother me with this bookish nonsense Either publish it or go to hellWhile Singer is a great artist who writes about universal human things he is I think also the most Jewish of writers; nowhere else have I ever felt the essence of Jewish culture like I feel when reading Singer and it's a culture that I have taken deeply to heart There is also something hauntingly nostalgic about his stories they have perfectly preserved moments and episodes of the past He is so intensely there in whichever time he is writing about It's also fascinating how his stories move from the most bizarre occult and spiritual subjects and thoughts to the most banal and mundane often within the same paragraph He is one of my all time favorites I curse and ridicule any fool who gives him less than five stars

    Singer has a habit in many of his stories where the narrator will meet another character often than not in a cafeteria and that character will then tell a story about their life or someone else's It's an interesting way to frame a story especially because the speaker comes across as much relaxed and candidThere were four stories in particular that resonated with me A Crown of Feathers A Day in Coney Island The Third One and Grandfather and Grandson If you read anything in this collection go to those stories

  9. says:

    What a delight These stories are largely set in Warsaw though some are set in New York City and others in Russia I just love the view into a different world a different time a different religion Although many of the characters suffer tremendously in these stories Singer writes with such delight and joy that its hard not to have a smile at the end of nearly each story I could reread these stories over and over again for the rest of my life

  10. says:

    There is a good deal of repetition in framing here most stories in the collection centered around either a starving writer passing time with his fellow emigres in the dingy NYC cafeteria or a poor Jew in the old country both trying desperately to find their place in the world These stories remind me than a little bit of Jerzy Kosinski's work with their sense of alienation and uiet despair their anonymity the protagonist in both Crown and Steps is never named albeit with Singer's works rated PG and not one generation removed from the old country and its diaspora Even 50 years later these works are surprisingly accessible and leavened with humor that still carries over the generations The Jewish experience is cruel Singer tells us we can't help but laugh
