Aleichem, Sholem, Shevrin, Aliza
Published for the first time in the United States, and never before translated into English, this volume, a sequel to The Adventures of Menachem-Mendl, follows the hapless -- albeit hilarious -- adventures of one of Sholem Aleichem's most beloved literary characters.Menachem-Mendl is one of Sholem Aleichem's most delightful literary creations, a dreamy optimist who travels to New York and across Eastern Europe in search of an elusive fortune at the approach of World War I. His wife, Sheyne-Sheyndl, and children are left behind in the shtetl of Kasrilevka.Written in 1913 and previously unpublished in the United States, The Further Adventures of Menachem-Mendl consists of Menachem-Mendl's letters home and his wife's often tart replies. Working for Yiddish newspapers, Menachem-Mendl writes his opinions of world events and Jewish problems. Through the eyes of this shrewd small-town Jew we see events leading to a cataclysmic war, which include his uncannily familiar treatment of conflicts in theBalkans. Menachem-Mendl describes the Zionist Congress in Vienna with Aleichem's inimitable humor, exaggeration, and realism. In her replies to her husband, Sheyne-Sheyndl reminds him that his family grapples with crushing poverty and persecution. Aliza Shevrin's fluid translation captures the idiomatic richness of the original Yiddish and brings Aleichem's vanished culture to vibrant life.Aleichem, Sholem is the author of 'Further Adventures of Menachem-Mendl (New York--Warsaw--Vienna--Yehupetz)' with ISBN 9780815606772 and ISBN 081560677X.
