Translated by Aliza Shevrin & Elizabeth Shub
In Enemies, A Love Story – an ode to the complicated postwar experience of Holocaust survivors – Isaac Bashevis Singer tells the story of Herman Broder, a man lost in his own indecisiveness and dishonesty. Almost before he knows it, Herman has three wives: Yadwiga, the Polish peasant who hid him from the Nazis, Masha, his beautiful and neurotic true love, and Tamara, his first wife, miraculously returned from the dead. But the difficulty of navigating his crowded personal life, as well as the general ambiguous experience of Yiddish New York after WWII, leaves Herman with a sense of perpetually impending doom.
