MEDIA REVIEWS

"Dovid Bergelson's Descent is one of the most striking products of a modernist literature seemingly lost in recent history. Translations of forward-looking Yiddish modernists like Sholem Asch and I. J. Singer once dominated the best-seller lists throughout the world. Joseph Sherman's readable, accessible translation of Bergelson's novel adds one more text to that canon and shows how valuable this canon is for any study of modern literature and culture, especially of the Jews of Europe." --Sander L. Gilman, University of Illinois, Chicago


"Even in English translation, Descent is a major contribution to Yiddish literature. Sherman enhances this edition with an excellent introductory essay and bibliography." --Choice
