REVIEWS

Praise for Scum

"Mr. Singer displays his usual verve for storytelling. His energetic prose, his exuberant imagination, his ability to make familiar plots yield an endless supply of new twists -- all are joyously undiminished."
--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"Marvellous descriptions of Warsaw life."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Culturally rich."
--Publishers Weekly

"That Singer is a master storyteller is evident in this compelling--and quite modern--tale.... a striking novel ... full of memorable characters sketched with great artistry. Highly recommended."
--Library Journal

"The plot of 'Scum' is simple, but Mr. Singer twists it until its vision is new and unexpected."
-- Bette Pesetsky, The New York Times
