Isaac Bashevis Singer (1902 – 1991) was a Polish-born Jewish writer in Yiddish, awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1978. He was a leading figure in the Yiddish literary movement, writing and publishing only in Yiddish. He was also awarded two U.S. National Book Awards, one in Children's Literature for his memoir A Day Of Pleasure: Stories of a Boy Growing Up in Warsaw (1970) and one in Fiction for his collection A Crown of Feathers and Other Stories (1974). His book on THE GOLEM did much to publicize this mysterious figure from Jewish folklore.
