Gimpel The Fool – Isaac Bashevis Singer

Who bought it: Me. What is it: A collection of short stories. Gimpel the Fool, the first short story in this book, is supposed to be his greatest short story. When: November 19, 2011 Where: One of the second-hand book stores at Cubao Ex Why: I was hunting for a Hollinghurst book but found this instead. The Hollinghurst book was bought. I should have bought it when I saw it first, but I wasn’t sure if I’d like to be a Hollinghurst fan then or not. Anyway, I’m currently setting up a project the aims to read at least one book from all the Nobel laureates, and Gimpel the Fool is a wonderful addition. How much: Php 125.00
