Isaac Bashevis Singer loved to give interviews. He was famous for encouraging interruptions of the solitary task of writing. These twenty-four welcomed interruptions are representative of the many he allowed over a twenty-five-year period.Included here are his conversations with such interviewers as Irving Howe, Laurie Colwin, Richard Burgin, and Herbert R. Lottman. In these talks Singer discusses the nature of his writing, its ethnic roots, his demonology, the importance of free will, and the place of storytelling in human life.The interviews with Singer reveal both his impish sense of humor and a determination that sustained him through many years of limited acclaim and comparative neglect by critics.Yiddishists often faulted him for refusing to use his talent as a force for change in the world, Jewish readers often deplored his use of pre-Enlightenment folk material, and academics could not take too seriously a writer who insisted on telling stories that emphasized plot and character. Yet he was not deterred from his astonishing and beloved work, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize.

ISAAC BASHEVIS SINGER’S 14 NOVELS in English, memoirs, and hundreds of short stories, set on four continents and in as many centuries, not to mention his children’s books and countless translations and journalistic pieces in Yiddish, form an unusually coherent whole. Any chapter of Singer, a paragraph, sometimes even the look of the sixties Noonday Press typography on the physical page, and you are back in Singerworld.

My brother had briefly met Singer in the 70's in New York city, so I had heard his name. I am a long time subscriber of the Library of America selection [...], who are great publishers. When I saw this selection, I jumped on it.

Singer is a story teller of epic proportions. Similar to what Joyce did with Dubliners, Singer takes you into a unique world in the first sentences of his stories and a journey thereafter. He is known as a Yiddish writer, but like Ulysses by Joyce, his theme and understanding are universal. This is a collection for everyone's library. You will get a lifetime of joy reading these stories of the many lives created by Mr. Singer.

Singer is one of the greatest writers of stories the world has known. He came to the United States at the age of thirty- one and for the next approximately five decades created the bulk of his fiction. Singer wrote in Yiddish and the lion's share of his work is set in Eastern Europe in pre- War Poland.
This is what William Dereseiwicz has to say about this collection in his NYTimes Review."The sheer abundance of his production, along with that famous interest in sex, suggests a Jewish Boccaccio, and Singer is indeed Boccaccian in his exuberance, facility and invention. Rejecting modernism with its deliberate difficulties and programmatic experimentation, he remained faithful to the older pleasures of character and plot. Singer can get a story going in no time flat, conjure characters so vivid you feel as if they're sitting next to you, pour forth an endless supply of situations and surprises. Some of his stories are mere trifles (the third volume in particular contains a fair number of throwaways), but many more are enigmatic or mordant or sly, hauntingly strange or piercingly sad. Reading through the 2,500 pages of this collection, I found myself bored maybe twice."

My favorite Singer stories are included in this collection. "Short Friday" " Gimpel the Fool" " The Spinoza of Market Street" and " The Little Shoemakers"
This collection is a true treasure one 'American Library' is to be commended for putting out.
