Alumni News: Liberal Studies

February 26, 2013

Masters book coverGreg Masters (Liberal Studies M.A., 1994) wrote Stumbling into Modernity: Isaac Bashevis Singer’s Cling to Tradition (BookBaby/Amazon Digital Services, 2012), a critical look at the Nobel Prize–winning author’s work. While the study seeks a place in the modern canon for Singer’s work, it wrestles with his limitations in continually attempting to reconcile his past, in the Jewish provinces of Poland, with choices available in twentieth-century America. It is available from most ebook publishers.
