Tevye the Dairyman and Motl the Cantor's Son
Publisher: Penguin Books
Tevye is the compassionate, lovable, Bible-quoting dairyman from Anatevka, and “Tevye the Dairyman” is a heartwarming and poignant account of life in turn-of-the-century Russia. Through the workaday world of a rural dairyman, his grit, wit, and heart, his daughters' courtships and marriages, and the eventual menace of the pogroms, Sholem Aleichem reveals the fabric of a now-vanished world. Motl is the clear-eyed, spirited, mischievous boy who narrates “Motl the Cantor's Son”, a comic novel about his emigration with his family from Russia to America. It is a journey that mirrors a larger exodus, telling the story of the disintegration of traditional Jewish life and the beginning of a new chapter of Jewish history in America.
