Satan in Goray

A Novel

Isaac Bashevis Singer; Introduction by Ruth R. Wisse; Translated by Jacob Sloan

Farrar, Straus and Giroux

As messianic zeal sweeps through medieval Poland, the Jews of Goray divide between those who, like the Rabbi, insist that no one can "force the end" and those who follow the messianic pretender Sabbatai Zevi. But as hysteria and depravity increase, it becomes clear that it is not the Messiah who has come to Goray.

REVIEWS

Praise for Satan in Goray

"A remarkable book, brilliant, enigmatic, it deserves the attention of anyone interested in modern literature . . . A work of the imagination which neither permits not requires easy statements."--Irving Howe
