Isaac Bashevis Singer (1904-1991) is one of the true literary giants of twentieth century literature. The Magician Of Lublin is a timeless tale of human emotions, questions, and quandaries as young Yasha's reckless courage takes him to the very edge of catastrophe. Singer had an unrivaled gift for creating very real, believable characters caught up in the vicissitudes of life and with whom we can all readily identify.

A good book group choice. The characters and the setting in eastern Europe in the 19th century will be new subjects for most readers. They were for me. My group talked about the book with enthusiasm and not a little dismay at the choices the main character made. Could this have happened? Who knows? I recommend reading this book. It will be a new discovery of the Old World.

"The Magician of Lublin" is a simple morality tale. Yasha is a magician who performs magic shows throughout Poland. He himself is a rationalist on the borderline of being an atheist. His wife, on the other hand, is a believing and practicing Jew who lives strictly according to Jewish law. Yasha is a serial adulterer who has a mistress in every city where his job as a magician takes him to.

The story starts when Yasha goes to Warsaw on a tour. This journey is a metaphor to the spiritual journey that Yasha embarks on and, as the journey advances, and after a few shattering episodes, he finally decides to change his life up-side down and abandon his former self. As in his other books, the "The Magician of Lublin" also primarily deals with a person's self-revelation, rationality and religion, and the relationship between God and man.

From the little I know of Yiddish (my Grandfather always said that Yiddish has the juiciest descriptions and curses), it is a fairly hard language to translate, and some of its idioms are impossible to translate. Having said that, I think the translator did a fine job. "The Magician of Lublin" is an absorbing and readable novel, yet because of having just read "The Slave", comparisons between the two are inevitable. In my opinion, "The Magician of Lublin" fails to compete with "The Slave" (also written by Isaac Bashevis Singer) in almost every aspect. "The Slave" is more readable, absorbing, interesting and, at the end, just better. This doesn't mean "The Magician of Lublin" is horrible. On the contrary, it is an excellent book, but when comparing it to "The Slave", it will have to settle for second place.

Yasha is at his peak; a talented magician famed throughout Poland he has a devoted wife and a string of mistresses. He plans to elope with Emilia to Italy where he would earn wider fame,yet his conscience troubles him; these transgressions go against his grain. In the space of a day his whole world begins to fall apart piece by piece.He sees his salvation only in death and a reconcilliation with God....
Bashevas Singer is a master story teller in the great middle European tradition and this reads like a Grimm fairy tale. Bashevas Singer also infuses the tale with the vibrant jewish culture that existed in Poland at the turn of the last century; a culture that survived Russian pogroms but vanished after the holocaust,which meant that jewish people could no longer passively await a messiah and accepting suffering as Bashevas Singer's jews do.
Yasha's struggle to find God in a Godless world may seem well worn, but thats only because others have followed Bashevas Singers lead. Masterful story telling from a deserved nobel winner.
