Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Tevye is the lovable, Bible-quoting father of seven daughters, a modern Job whose wisdom, humor, and resilience inspired the lead character in the classic Fiddler on the Roof. And Motl is the mischievous nine-year-old boy who journeys with his family from their Russian shtetl to New York, and whose comical, poignant, and clear-eyed observations capture with remarkable insight the struggles, hopes, and triumphs of Jewish immigrants to America at the dawn of the 20th century.
