QuotationThe Singer books have come and I am in the midst of one of them, Gimpel, which is fabulous, literally. I think he is tremendous, powerfully religious, haunting. He has a wonderful mythical, archetypal quality that really fascinates and shakes you. Some of his stuff is, I am shure, in a broad sense prophetic.
