The stories in these pages comprise all the surviving fiction of a man described by John Updike in the introduction as ‘one of the great transmogrifiers of the world into words’. They portray the doom-ridden yet comic world of a small Polish town in the years before the war, a world brought vividly to life in prose as memorable and as unique as are the brushstrokes of Marc Chagall.
