Pressestimmen

At a time when in children's literature the power of the imagination is frequently lost sight of or diluted, it is fortunate that we can honor a great storyteller. Mr. Singer has created out of remembered fragments of his own childhood a place instantly familiar where life is not neat and orderly, where the adventures of a boy throw into sharp and recognizable focus those resistant elements of the ever-troubled human condition. (From the judges' citation, National Book Award for Children's Literature)

Singer's memories of his youth in Poland make a powerful, brilliant children's book. The author lays out a panorama of Jewish life in the city-- the rabbis in black velvet and gabardine, the shopkeepers, the street urchins and schoolboys, the poverty, the confusion, the excitement of the prewar time. But even more, the author reveals himself; and the torments and mysteries that plagued him as a child will make his stories fascinating to other children....Reflecting a bygone world, the photographs add a further note of realism and power. (The Horn Book)

Format: Taschenbuch
To enjoy listening to stories told by grandfather, you don't necessarily have to be a child! As a matter of fact, it is a life virtue to enjoy these stories told by Isaac Bashevis Singer, regardless of age. They are set in the now vanished Hassidic community of pre-II World War, but their moral content transcends time and space, and although they are soaked in Jewishness they equally appeal to the open-minded reader. Beware that out of the seventeen tales in this editon, 14 are included in "My Father's Court," by the same author.

"A Day of Pleasure" beinhaltet 19 autobiografische Kurzgeschichten zwischen 1904 und 1918 (Ausnahme: die letzte Geschichte "Shosha", die in den 1930ern spielt). Die einzelnen Geschichten haben eine Länge von ca. 10 Seiten und sind mit alten Fotos illustriert. 14 dieser Kurzgeschichten erschienen bereits in "In My Father's Court", nur 5 sind völlig neu (Who I am; The Trip from Radzymin to Warsaw; Reb Itchele and Shprintza; The Mysteries of the Cabala; Shosha).

Singer gelingt es gut, die Zeit in der jüdischen Gemeinde vor und während des Ersten Weltkriegs darzustellen. Bewundernswert, dass er dafür nur wenige Seiten benötigt, um dieses Gefühl beim Leser hervorzurufen. Neben den alltäglichen Problemen werden aber auch weltpolitische Umwälzungen wie das Attentat von Sarajevo als Auslöser des Ersten Weltkriegs oder die Russische Revolution - immer aus der Sicht des Kindes - thematisiert.

The Best Autobiography by Far! by Sammy K. 4th Grade 20. April 2006
Kinder-Rezension - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I am Jewish, and I learned a lot from this book. I learned about life in Warsaw, and about the time period around World War I. It shows how that time compares to this, and how much more we have now than back then. Lots of people take electric lights for granted. This book shows what it was like to live through freezing weather, hunger, and stress about war.

I don't exactly like autobiographies, but this one really, really hit the spot!

A World of Yesterday Captured Forever 20. Februar 2012
Von An admirer of Saul - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
19 beautifully told anecdotes and rememberances of a childhood in the Jewish districts of Warsaw, of a young boy trying to make sense of the magical world around him against the background of the fast changing World of the twentieth century, where a world war, new realisms- political social and scientific- are sweeping away the old. And soon to come is the greatest horror of all that will end this world of Bashevis Singers childhood.
'A Day of Pleasure' won a national childrens book award, but it is a book for all ages to enjoy and gain the love of learning and literature that Bashevis Singer inspires. Beyond the religious culture and rites that differentiate people there is a universal rite of passage that all people go through growing up in a big strange world that Bashevis Singer captures perfectly. The book also has photographs taken by Roman Vishnial of the jewish community in Warsaw between 1930-39 that adds flavour to the world Bashevis Singer writes of and reminds of a World thats gone.
Easily read (in a day of pleasure!) this is hugely enjoyable weather its the first Bashevis Singer you read or-like me-one after many others. I would recommend this to anyone who loves great literature.Excellent.

The childhood of a master story- teller 12. Januar 2005
Von Shalom Freedman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Singer just has it. These vignettes of his childhood do not have the emotional power of his greatest stories but they are rich with life, insight and humor. And somehow he tells stories even when he is making simple descriptions of his early life. This work too tells the pain and poverty of his childhood and the difficulty of his parents' lives. It is too a tribute to a world - gone .

childhood in a bygone time 10. September 2014
Von Bob Newman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In his inimitable style, Singer wrote a series of short stories about growing up in Warsaw
before, during and just after World War I. Perhaps they were aimed at younger readers,
perhaps not. They don't deal with much mystery, love, sex, or death, but instead with daily life, poverty,
Jewish and Polish characters around him, and with childhood explorations. They are as smooth
and effortless as the rest of his work, wonderful evocations of a time gone by, and of the Hasidic culture
that has disappeared from Europe and has been transformed in America and Israel. You meet rabbis, washerwomen, schoolboys, and goose dealers. The divide between those who wanted to stick to tradition and those who wanted to modernize had already opened. Singer's father belonged to the former, his older brother to the latter. The great political changes that swept Poland in those years are seen from a child's point of view, a child who moved from the country to 10 Krochmalna Street in Warsaw, and then ultimately to Austria-Hungary to avoid hunger during WW I. You will appreciate the many photographs of Polish Jewish life taken by Roman Vishniac in the 1930s, before the Holocaust swept the world of my ancestors away forever.
