A Book of Great WorthBook - 2012
Set largely among the Jewish community of inter-war New York City, this is a beautifully-told collection of scenes from Morgenstern's life. The tricky ground of writing the advice column for a provincial Yiddish daily; successes during, and hard times after, the Depression; a position at the top of his craft as a labour specialist in the New York City Yiddish press - these and many more form a portrait of "a fundamentally decent man in morally perplexing situations".
