Journey to my father, Isaac Bashevis Singer
When Isaac Bashevis Singer emigrated from Poland to America in 1935, he left behind his wife and five-year-old son, Israel, with the promise to send for them as soon as he got settled. He never did. Mother and child moved first to the USSR and ultimately to Israel, where Zamir grew up on a kibbutz. In 1995, twenty years after their separation, Zamir came to New York to meet his father.
Singer's strengths and failings, his methods of working, his passion for the Yiddish language, his lust for words, for women, and for life, all come to new light in Zamir's candid and touching account. Journey to My Father, Isaac Bashevis Singer is a personal and moving portrait of one of this century's major writers. It is also an honest exploration of the often charged and complex relationship between father and son, and son and father.

Review: Journey to My Father, Isaac Bashevis SingerUser Review - Goodreads
great book, and seems to be true and credible as well. most of the written facts are in accordance with Janet Hadda's academic IBSinger-biography. I like in Israel Zamir's writing his honesty, finally someone who does not deny having been a Communist!
