    The Last Demon is great though it s hard, with Jewish context Yentl the Yeshiva Boy is new totally a new theme for a contemporary reader like me And The Cafeteria has simply brought light on my head Here is the paragraph that might stimulate you some clue of the light on my head , if you are curious I thought about what Esther had told me of seeing Hitler in the cafeteria It had seemed utter nonsense, but now I began to reappraise the idea If time and space are nothingthan f The Last Demon is great though it s hard, with Jewish context Yentl the Yeshiva Boy is new totally a new theme for a contemporary reader like me And The Cafeteria has simply brought light on my head Here is the paragraph that might stimulate you some clue of the light on my head , if you are curious I thought about what Esther had told me of seeing Hitler in the cafeteria It had seemed utter nonsense, but now I began to reappraise the idea If time and space are nothingthan forms of perception, as Kant argues, and quality, quantity, causality are only categories of thinking, why shouldn t Hitler confer with his Nazis in a cafeteria on Broadway Esther didn t sound insane She had seen a piece of reality that the heavenly censorship prohibits as a rule She had caught a glimpse behind the curtain of the phenomena I regretted that I had not asked fordetails Years have passed and I have never seen Esther again Yes corpses do walk on Broadway But why did Esther choose that particular corpse She could have got a better bargain even in this world.The Last Demon is my first attempt to Singer s writing Some said The Last Demon is the best introduction to Singer And I m glad if it is true because I am so comfortable with his penmanship, and may be will after my second attempt consider him next to Gabriel Gracia Marquez as my most favorite author

    Containing three short stories The Last Demon, Yentl the Yeshiva Boy, and The Cafeteria this short collection shines as the laconic, personal tales unfold and roam over the vast topics of religion, morality, temptation, modernity, and the Yiddish spirit While difficult, perhaps impossible, to truly appreciate without understanding the Jewish context, the book nonetheless makes for an intruding read for a Gentile, and is a great introduction to the spirit of Singer.
