Satan in Goray Author:Isaac Bashevis Singer "THE MESSIAH HAD FINALLY BEEN REVEALED!" came the cry through the streets in the little Polish town of Goray. The bearer of these tidings became the unoffical patriarch of the town. His judgments and generosity earned him respect and he was acclaimed far and wide for his charity and his learning. Then the whispers began - there was talk of orgi... more »es and unspeakable acts. Slowly the town became aware that it was not the Messiah at all. This is the background behind the book many critics believe to be the most powerful work of ISAAC BASHEVIS SINGER.
"Poetically conceived, it captures the folk-frenzy for salvation...Beautifully written...SATAN IN GORAY is folk material transmuted into literature." Meyer Levin, The New York Times« less
