The wishing-ring : a novel by Mendele Mokher Sefarim( Book )

27 editions published between 1865 and 2003 in Yiddish and English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this work Michael Wex renders the time-honored tale with the skill and ease of a modern storyteller and humorist. Abramovitsh's artistry lies not in the plot but in the descriptions and ever-shifting narrative voice. Sometimes the narrator (Mendele the Book Peddler) speaks from within the shtetl and sometimes from outside; and often he interweaves the high rhetorical prose of Hershl himself, reborn by the novel's end as Heinrich Cohen."--Jacket
Di Kliatshe by Mendele Mokher Sefarim( Recording )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in Yiddish and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considered to be the founder of modern Yiddish literature, Mendele Moykher Sforim sculpted what was then primarily a language of home and marketplace into a subtle instrument of satire and comedy. Di Kliatshe (The Mare) tells the story of Israel, a young man trying to "get out of the Pale of Settlement and become a doctor. On his way to the University he encounters an old beaten nag who draws Israel into a magical and traumatic history of the nag's hardships throughout her life. A fierce satire pitting the "Enlightened" Jew against Jewish history and making both battling camps look foolish
