Wandering Stars

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the publication of ‘Wandering Stars’
by Sholem Aleichem
Translated by: Aliza Shevrin

Sholem Aleichem’s sprawling love story set in the colorful world of the Yiddish theater, this literary classic is presented in a vibrant new translation.

In a Russian shtetl at the end of the 19th century, Reisel, a poor girl, and Leibel, a rich boy, run away with a traveling theater company. The young lovers are quickly parted. Reisel goes on to become a famous concert star; Leibel, a theatrical sensation. Separated by success and meddling managers, the two spend years apart before both eventually land in the Big Apple. An engrossing romance, anthem to the theater, and a wonderful New York story, Wandering Stars is a true classic.(425 Pages)
