    (January 14, 1902-July 24, 1991)
    Birth name was Icek-Hersz Zynger
    Wrote ‘Satan in Goray (1932),' ‘The Family Mokat (1950),' ‘Gimpel the Fool (1957),' ‘My Father's Court (1961),' ‘The Slave (1962),' ‘The Manor (1967),' ‘The Estate (1969),' ‘A Friend of Kafka (1970),' ‘Enemies, a Love Story (1972)' and ‘Yentl the Yeshiva Boy (1983)'
    He left his wife and son.
    His stories contain many bizarre characters and situations.
    His writings inspired the god-awful Barbra Streisand vehicle ‘Yentl.'
    He liked to blah-blah about how everyone should be vegetarian.
    He said: ‘If there would come a voice from God saying, I'M AGAINST VEGETARIANISM, I would say, Well, I am for it!'
    He incorporated the name ‘Bashevis' as a tribute to his mother, Bathsheba (Bashevis means ‘Son of Bathsheba').
    He escaped from Poland before Hitler invaded.
    He worked to revive the Yiddish language after World War II.
    He said that although many Jews were murdered during the war, ‘Something – call it spirit or whatever – is still in the universe.'
    He wrote books for children as well as adults.
    He won the Nobel Prize for literature.
    Someone asked him if he converted to vegetarianism for health reasons, and he said: ‘I did it for the health of the chickens!'
