Als Het Joodse Engeltje Sjmoe L Abbe Uit Het Paradijs Naar De Aarde Is Gestuurd, Wordt Hij Daar Bij Nieuwe Ouders Geboren Aan Zijn Nieuwe Vader En De Drie Notabelen Van Het Dorp Vertelt Hij Over De Spannende Avonturen Die Hij Samen Met Zijn Vriend Pisjerl Heeft Beleefd In Het Paradijs, Waar Alle Bekende Bijbelse Figuren Worden Verbeeld Als Oostjoodse SjtetlbewonersKwajongensstreken, Liefdesperikelen, Een Nachtelijke Spookgeschiedenis En Een Heuse Ontmoeting Met Adam En Eva Passeren De Revue I have read quite some Yiddish literature in translation as a child, but wasn t prepared for this novel a Voltarian satire set in the Jewish Paradise distinct from the Christian and the Turkish Paradises , which parallels life on Earth, specifically in Manger s native Czernowitz in the early 1900s I think that of all the books I ve read last year, this one was the most enjoyable. This book was recommended by my teacher, and I think it was the best Yiddish bukh I read so far Shmuel Abe is a very likeable character, who is sent to Earth, but doesn t forget what happened to him in paradise Shmuel Abe has to cope with losing his friend over a girl, spending weeks in Christian Paradise without staying there for good and trying to convince the rabbi, the dayen and the richest person of his village that everything he tells about paradise is true Also, if you want to fully understand this book, you have to either be an expert in Jewish culture religion history or know the Old Testament very well.
Manger was born in Czernowitz, in Austria Hungary He lived in Romania, Poland, France, England and finally in Israel where he died in 1969.
