Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
In 1978, Isaac B. Singer was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. He was a gifted writer who had over 40 volumes of short stories, novels, plays and other writings published. Singer once said he viewed himself as a "Yiddish writer." He had left Europe to escape Hitler and arrived in America with almost nothing. Singer wrote for one Yiddish newspaper for more than 40 years, publishing one or two stories or chapters each week in it. His writings include "Enemies, A Love Story" and "Shadows on the Hudson." The latter book involves people anxiously searching for meaning in this world or the next.
