In My Father's Court

by Isaac Bashevis Singer

I grabbed this tome at the Friends of the Library sale because I had read and enjoyed Mr. Singer's Stories for Children years ago. I was once again treated to a well-written and entertaining book. This one's a memoir of Mr. Singer's childhood in early 20th Century Poland. His father was a pious, conservative rabbi, which meant a conservative and somewhat impoverished upbringing. But such a life resulted in a wealth of anecdotes from his family, community and his father's Beth din or rabbinic court.
