S. Y. Abramovitsh's famed epic novel explores the social upheaval of Russian Jews who are forced by poverty to leave their homes. As he traces the dissolution of the Eastern European shtetl and traditional Jewish life, Abramovitsh narrates a coming-of-age story of a shtetl child with a fresh and inspired perspective. The novel achieved canonical status both in its Yiddish original and in its Hebrew version, but under the title, In the Vale of Tears."."
