Join fellow Columbia alumni as the book club discusses Michael Shapiro's selection of The Estate by Isaac Bashevis Singer. Our host David Hartmann hopes you will join us for an evening of lively discussion moderated by Chris Stacey.
According to Gerald Jonas of The New York Times: ''The Estate'' is a continuation of the story Singer began in ''The Manor,'' which was first published in English in 1967. A group of Polish Jews, related by blood, marriage and misfortune, have emerged from the ghettos to seek a new life in a country that is itself struggling to emerge from a feudal past. In ''The Estate,'' the central events are illnesses, partings, betrayals of one sort of another and death. Despite the downward curve of the trajectory, the second volume is just as exhilarating to read as the first.
