A review of the book, Classic Yiddish Fiction: Abramovitsh, Sholem Aleichem and Peretz by Ken Frieden is presented. In contrast to the forgetfulness and neglect that is the lot of many Yiddish writers in the 20th century, the classic writers of Yiddish literature of the late 19th and early 20th century enjoy a good deal of fine scholarly attention. In this book, Frieden takes as his subjects these three bilingual writers, whose work symbolize a turning point in the history of Yiddish literature.
