Apr 30,  · Reuben Sachs by Amy Levy, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(). Jan 02,  · Of the 16 books I have read published by Persephone Books, my favorite is Reuben Sachs by Amy Levy, and I appreciate Oscar Wilde's appraisal of it: "Its directness, its uncompromising truths, its depth of feeling, and above all, its absence of any single superfluous word, make Reuben Sachs, in some sort, a classic." I am afraid Mr. Wilde has made this review superfluous, but.

Reuben Sachs is generally considered her greatest work, a study of Anglo-Jewish life in s London. The book is only a little over pages (not including commentary by scholars; another of her three "novels" is barely 60 pages, so it's really not a novel). Today Levy is renowned for one Reuben Sachs, a powerful work which caused a sensation when it first appeared in the same year, This was the first book by a Jew to open up British middle-class Jewish life to a wide public, and is a bitter commentary of Jewish society as Levy then saw it.
