Fools of Chelm, The

Fools of Chelm, The
Even though they were poor, the people of Chelm were content with their lives until the Council of Sages made them aware of their problems.

Publishers Weekly:

A satirical look at the residents of Chelm, the legendary Yiddish town of fools.

"The town of Chelm is just like every place else, only worse, as numerous shortages, foolish citizens, and inept leaders combine to make life thoroughly miserable. In this whimsical satire, Singer mocks the 'advantages'-such as war, crime, and revolution-that civilization brings to Chelm." --Booklist
