Isaac Bashevis Singer: "Singer went
from an ethnic, Yiddish-speaking
audience to a larger, English-lan-
guage audience. He transformed
himself and American literature in
the process," says Max Rudin, pub-
lisher of the Library of America and
Singer centennial director:

Prize in Literature. He was the seventh
American and only Yiddish writer to
receive the award.
"When I learned about the Library of
America grant competition, I decided to
do puppet theater to involve children,"
says Shelley Gach, library director in
Huntington Woods. "We're also glad to
be receiving a three-volume edition of
his collected stories."
Close the Window, based on the tale
"The First Shlemiel," is a funny piece
about an old man who never seems to
get anything right.
The story celebrates traditions," says
Igor Gozman, the puppet theater
founder who had his training in Russia
and will be working the production
with Natasha Khusid, who has been a
professor of performing arts in Russia.

Collected Stories

Max Rudin, publisher of the Library of
America and Singer centennial director,
says the centennial events recognize
Singer — as he becomes the subject of
the library's first national program — as
a model of an immigrant author.
The library, started in 1979 with seed
money from the National Endowment
for the Humanities and the Ford
Foundation, preserves the nation's liter-
acy heritage by publishing authoritative
editions of America's most significant
"Singer went from an ethnic, Yiddish-
speaking audience to a larger, English-
language audience. He transformed
himself and American literature in the
process," says Rudin, who calls attention
to four new Library of America-pro-
duced volumes being released this
Edited by Ilan Stavans, an author and
editor who also serves as the Lewis-
Sebring Professor of Latin American and
Latino Culture at Amherst College, they
are Singer: Collected Stories — Gimpel the
Fool to The Letter Writer (Library of
America; $35); Singer: Collected Stories
— A Friend of Kafkas to Passions
(Library of America; $35); and Singer:
Collected Stories — One Night in Brazil
to The Death of Methuselah (Library of
