About this Recording

ALEICHEM, S.: Tevye the Milkman (Unabridged)

Tevye the Milkman, a uniquely charming Jewish novel from Tsarist rural Russia, provided the principal character for Fiddler on the Roof. Here we have the full story, with all its Jewish humour, wisdom and despair. The central character, Tevye the Milkman, goes around the community in the Russian countryside delivering milk and cheese, but also dispensing wisdom from the Talmud laced with his commonsense view of life. Funny, enriching but also moving, this remarkable little Jewish classic will charm all who hear it, especially in the reading by veteran audiobook performer Neville Jason.

  • The first audiobook recording of a minor classic from which came Fiddler on the Roof
  • Marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sholem Aleichem
  • A must for all Jewish communities, but also those who enjoy a simple but affecting story
  • Approximate running time: 4 hours
  • Format: 3 CD set
