A fictional exploration of primitive history, Singer's novel portrays an age of superstition and violence in a country emerging from the darkness of savagery. Part parable of modern civilization, part fascinating historical novel, it reaffrims the author's reputation as a master storyteller.

Praise for A King of the Fields

"[Singer's] vision and imagination are stronger than ever, and whether one reads the book as a parable of modern civilization and its discontents or as unadulterated fantasy, one is indelibly transfixed."
--Library Journal
 
"The strength of I. B. Singer's novel comes from the language, as it constantly undermines the flow of the narrative by infusing into the text - written in Yiddish and translated into English by the author - Polish words and phrases."
--The New York Times
