MEDIA REVIEWS

"A well researched and persuasively argued comparative study of modern Yiddish and Ukrainian literature... a pioneering work" --Mikhail Krutikov, author of Yiddish Fiction and the Crisis of Modernity, 1905-1914


"Glaser shows that the leading literatures of the Pale--Yiddish, Russian, and Ukrainian --fully reflected ... a [shared] fascination with the fair as a dynamic and picturesque manifestation of people's lives." --Jewish Quarterly
"Glaser has found an illuminating lens through which to read the Ukrainian Jewish encounter." --East European Jewish Affairs
