Esther Singer Kreitman is the elder sister of Isaac Bashevis Singer, but her book was never translated until her son grew up and translated it, and it was only published in English (by the wonderful people at Virago who put a lot of "lost" women's literature out into the world) in 1983. Her first novel Der Szejdym Tanc was translated into English as Deborah, Dance of the demons. Her second novel, Brilyantn was translated as Diamonds.

Only 3 left in stock (more on the way). I'm pleased to learn that Kreitman's novel Brilyantn has now been published in English translation as Diamonds, along with her novel Der Sheydim-Tants (translated by Carr as Deborah). Her stories, like her novels, show her as a powerful writer in her own right, yet like her brothers, a timeless and engaging author for audiences around the world.

A l portrait of the original Yentl and an important contribution to the vastly neglected genre of feminist Yiddish literature (Booklist). In this autobiographical novel-originally published in Yiddish as Der Sheydim Tanz in 1936-Esther Kreitman lovingly depicts a world replete with rabbis, yeshiva students, beggars, farmers, gangsters, seamstresses, and socialists as seen through the eyes of the girl who served as Isaac Bashevis Singer’s inspiration for the story Yentl, the Yeshiva Boy.

The Dance Of The Demons: A Novel (The Helen Rose Scheuer Jewish Women's Series). Author: Esther Singer Kreitman. Maurice Carr, Ilan Stavens, Anita Norich. The lost world of early 20th century Jewish life in Eastern Europe-of lively shtetls and ghetto streets-is known by many through the books of I. B. and I. J. Singer. But few know the Singers had a sister who was also a gifted writer and who saw this same world through a woman's eyes. Shroud 12: The Journal Of Dark Fiction And Art (Volume 3). Author

She was born in Biłgoraj, Congress Poland to a rabbinic Jewish family. Her younger brothers Israel Joshua Singer and Isaac Bashevis Singer subsequently became writers. Kreitman was the daughter of Pinchas Menachem Singer (Pinkhas Mendl Zinger) and his wife Basheve (Bathsheba), née Zylberman

The Dance of the Demons is a major literary rediscovery. In her daring autobiographical novel, originally published in Yiddish as Der Sheydim Tanz in 1936, Kreitman vividly and lovingly depicts the world of Polish shtetls and Jewish Warsaw that many have come to know through the books of her famous literary brothers, Israel Joshua and Nobel-Prize winner Isaac Bashevis Singer. Replete with rabbis, yeshiva students, beggars, farmers, gangsters, seamstresses, and socialists, this world looks radically different through the eyes of a sister, who was I. B. Singer's inspiration for the story "Yentl, the Yeshiva Boy."Deborah (Kreitman's fictional self) is barred from the studies at which her idealistic rabbi father and precocious brother excel. She revels in the books she hides behind the kitchen stove, in her brief forays outside the household, and in her clandestine attraction to a young Warsaw rebel. But her family confines and blunts her dreams, as they navigate the constraints of Jewish life in a world that tolerates, but does not approve, their presence. Forced into an arranged marriage, Deborah runs away from her new home on the eve of World War I. Epic in scope, this neglected youthful masterpiece provides a shattering vision of a lost world, and reveals the fate of women in a contradictory time, where age-old tradition scraped against modernity.Originally published in the United States as Deborah, The Dance of the Demons now includes memorial pieces by Kreitman's son and granddaughter.
  • Incredibly powerful feminist novel - before the time of feminism. I learned a lot about it, and it has stayed with me for weeks after reading it.

  • Esther Kreitman has recently as Ilan Stavas points out in his excellent introduction to this book has received recently more attention than she received at the time she was writing. She is the older sister of two great Yiddish language writers, Israel Joshua Singer and Nobel - Prize winner Isaac Bashevis Singer. She shares her brothers' remarkable story-telling gifts. One of the most interesting parts of this book is in fact in its beginning description of her family home, her book- loving , more realistic and practical mother and her dreamy, Hasidic , mystical father. She confirms the picture painted by her brothers in which as they said ' she should have been the man, and he should have been the woman'. Here we see the young religious girl, frustrated and bored at home, intellectually curious with no outlet for it , breaking away from the traditional framework as both her brothers did. The story of her further adventures, including her unfortunate arranged marriage makes for page- turning if not necessarily the most- happy reading. She in her writing has a sharp psychological realims which resembles that of the powerful Israel Joshua Singer. Like her brothers too she has a deep inside knowledge of Jewish religious life and its contradictions and difficulties. Again though what makes the book most valuable is her outstanding story- telling ability.
