Isaac Bashevis Singer: The Last Demon

Vigyázat! Cselekményleírást tartalmaz.

'I, a demon, bear witness that there are no more demons left.Why demons, when man himself is a demon?Why persuade to evil someone who is already convinced?I am the last of the persuaders.'Isaac Bashevis Singer, who won the Nobel Prize in 1978, is best-remembered for his humane and moving short stories, which drew comparison with those of Maupassant and Chekhov. The three collected here, about a girl who pretends to be a man in order to study the Torah, a frustrated demon, and a writer trying to understand the confusion of a holocaust survivor, illuminate the great themes of human suffering with supernal grace.This book includes The Last Demon, Yentl the Yeshiva Boy and The Cafeteria.
