Awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1966, S.Y. Agnon is the towering genius of modern Hebrew literature for his hard-edged modernism and weaving of Biblical and Talmudic references. With this collection of stories, reissued in paperback and expanded to include 11 more Agnon classics, the English-speaking audience has, at long last, access to Agnon's rich and brilliantly multifaceted fictional world of one of the great writers of last century. 

These stories span the lifetime of a quintessential wandering Jew-born in Buczacz, Poland, living in Germany, and finally settling in Jerusalem—and bring to life the full range of the modern Jewish experience in fiction.
