Summary
"A lost document of theatrical history written more than seven decades ago is now translated for the first time into English - the autobiography of the great Yiddish actor Jacob Adler. It is, as well, a history of the Yiddish theater - for which Adler himself was almost single-handedly responsible - in Russia, England, and the United States."--Jacket
