 Poor Matza: Selected Stories of Avrom Reisen Translated from the
Yiddish by Harvey Fink.

Poor Matza: Selected stories of Avrom Reisen translated from the
Yiddish by Harvey Fink. Avrom Reisen (1876-1953), narrated by David
Skulsi. Avrom Reisen was an acclaimed and prolific Yiddish poet and
short story writer for the American Yiddish dailies.This is a superb
translation by Harvey Fink of some of Reisen's best short stories. At
the time of Reisen's death, the Jewish Spectator wrote: "There are
many Yiddish writers who owe their success to Reisen's encouragement.
For years he published and edited, under great sacrifices, Yiddish
journals with the primary aim of providing a platform for young,
struggling writers... He had no arrogance, no pretensions and no
personal vanity."
