Summary
In a magnificent work of the imagination, Isaac Bashevis Singer brings to life the decline of the prosperous Moskat family, Polish Jews living in Warsaw between the dawn of the twentieth century and the gloom of 1939. On a vast breathtaking background, saints mingle with swindlers, tough Zionists with mystic philosophers, and mediaeval rabbis rub shoulders with ultra-modern painters. A novel on the grandest scale, "The Family Moskat" is a work of high entertainment and a deeply moving chronicle of people's disappointments and passions
