  When the thought and the word of an author become the only reality for readers, then love is born. It is love that can last forever, can be handed down like a father's prayer book, it makes us read the new books avidly and reread the old ones for hundred times. Often such feelings make people desire to find out about the author of the lines they keep in mind forever.

  Having got the opportunity to read the books of a great Jewish writer Isaac Bashevis-Zinger in Russian, the visitors of our library got interested in his life. That is why we dedicated one of our Library Literature Club to him. Lyubov Koretskaya, the inspirer of the discussion, told us very vividly and fascinatingly about Zinger's historical novel "A Slave", and about his biography.

  Literature critics called him "one of the best prose writers of the 20 century". Nobel Prize laureate, Isaac Zinger was born in 1904 in Poland. His first works were published in middle 20s. In 1935 he emigrated to the USA, were he became a world-famous writer thanks to his books translated from Yiddish to English. The writer died in 1991 in New-York.

  The Republican Jewish Library has the most famous books of Isaac Bashevis-Zinger: "A Slave", "A Juggler From Lyublin", "Shosha" with its sequel "Meshugah", "At My Father's Court", "The Pasions", and also wonderful stories and fairy-tales for children. Zinger remains understandable, interesting, new for all the generations. He is read, and the main thing is that he is loved, and this love gives a new life to the books.
