Ry of Yasha magician mesmerist juggler sword swallower master of escape and breaker of hear. I have just spent a long weekend with my parents and having finished the two books I brought with me I picked this out from one of their many shelves as Singer is a Nobel prizewinner that I had never read I suspect that they picked up this 1980 Penguin edition after seeing the film version that the cover photo is taken from I have never seen the film so had no preconceptionsI found the first half of the book a little dull perhaps because the main protagonist is not easy to like Yasha is an itinerant magician showman and illusionist in late 19th century Poland so somewhat reminiscent of Tyll but with a different political context and a different philosophical and religious underpinning Yasha has a devoted wife in his home town of Lublin and at least three regular mistresses one of whom is his assistant servant and travelling companion Magda and another is Emilia a professor s widow in Warsaw Yasha s parents were devout Jews but he has largely abandoned his religionEmilia is short of money and wants to travel to Italy for her daughter Halina s health and Yasha has made rash promises that he will fund the trip convert to Catholicism and marry her His inability to find the money leads him into temptation and in the second half the book turns into a classic religious morality tale view spoiler as Yasha s plots turn nightmareish and he repents in the final chapter three years later he has returned to Lublin to become a religious hermit hide spoiler
