Meshugah, Singer's third posthumous novel, is an impressive work which the author published serially in 1981 - 83. It concerns Holocaust survivors in New York in the early 1950s. The story is narrated by Aaron Greidinger, who finds himself inextricably invloved with a group of refugees on the Upper West Side.

Praise for Meshugah

"One would have to be meshugah (that is, cuckoo, crazy) not to celebrate the publication of this brief tragicomic novel by Isaac Bashevis Singer."
--The New York Times
 
"Extraordinary ... The novel's title (Yiddish for crazy) evokes Singer's pessimistic vision of the world as an insane asylum, but also conveys something of the manic energy he brings to a deceptively comic tale that distills his marvelous storytelling gifts."
--Publishers Weekly
 
"Ever the consummate storyteller, Singer understands that there is a bit of God and the devil in everyone and that passion cannot be explained."
--Library Journal
