Abstract:

"To This Day, Nobel prizewinner S.Y. Agnon's last novel (first published in Hebrew in 1952), is also his last to be translated into English. On the surface it is a comically entertaining tale of a young writer - a Galician Jew who has lived in Palestine, returns to Europe on the eve of World War I, and is now stranded in Berlin - who wanders from rented room to rented room in a city with a severe wartime housing shortage. On a deeper level it is a profound commentary on exile, Zionism, divine providence, human egoism, and other typically Agnonian concerns."--Jacket.
