The internationally renowned star of Fiddler on the Roof brings the original stories of Tevye to life! Tevye personified the dreams not only of Russian Jews but of people everywhere when he sang If I Were a Rich Man. And for millions around the world, Theodore Bikel personified Tevye. Now hear the original stories of Tevye, as written by Sholem Aleichem (pen name of Sholem Rabinovich): Today's Children, Hodl, Chava, and Lekh-Lekho, the stories which were the basis for Fiddler, plus Tevye Strikes It Rich and Tevye Blows a Small Fortune. Reacquaint yourself with the buoyant, ingenious, compassionate, irrepressible, anxious, philosophical, God-loving, God-fearing dairyman, who embodies the simple and joyous, difficult and sometimes dangerous world of the Eastern European Jews during a time of sweeping historical change.

    " I love this book! These short stories are funny, moving, and always entertaining glimpses into the author's impressions of life around the turn of the century. These are the type of stories you read again and again, each time getting something new out of them. Well done, Sholem Aleichem! "

    " I really liiked these stories. Humor and sadness mixed together. And, of course, who doesn't like Fiddler on the Roof? "

    " The original "Fiddler on the Roof" stories, and some bonuses. Great stuff from a great writer, and - unlike the (also excellent) musical inspired by it - not schmaltzy. "
