Isaac Bashevis Singer

The only Yiddish writer to win the Nobel Prize, Isaac Bashevis Singer would have been 100 on Wednesday. In honor of the occasion, the Library of America has released three volumes of his collected works. Ruth Seymour joins writer-journalist Jonathan Rosen, the Library of America's Ilan Stavans and KCRW's own Bookworm, Michael Silverblatt for a wide ranging discussion of the beloved and paradoxical Jewish writer.
