"Translated from Hebrew by Rebecca S. Beagle and Rebecca L. Soyer, these stories range from 'The Providers,' an exploration of poverty and compassion, to 'A Woman and Two Men,' a portrayal of the struggle of love and class; from tales evoking honor and community to the dark 'Transgression' or the succinct 'Forgotten Worlds,' a depiction of the two Judaisms - that of the joyous Chassdim and that of the studius Mitnagdim - of the author's childhood."
