Death of Methusela and Other Stories

Death of Methusela and Other Stories
Twenty stories from the Nobel Prizewinner, including "Disguised," a transvestite tale of the yeshiva student whose deserted wife finds him dressed as a woman and married to a man, and the title story, which portrays Methuselah at the age of 969 -- "and when you pass your nine hundredth birthday, you are not what you used to be."

Once again, Singer demonstrates his sparkling expertise in his treatment of Jewish folklore and legend.
