STEVE STERN's fiction, with its deep grounding in Yiddish folklore, has prompted critics such as Cynthia Ozick to hail him as the successor to Isaac Bashevis Singer. He is the author of critically acclaimed books such as Isaac and the Undertaker's Daughter, winner of the Pushcart Writers' Choice Award; The Wedding Jester, which won the National Jewish Book Award; and, most recently, The Angel of Forgetfulness, one of The Washington Post's Best Books of 2006. Stern currently lives in Balston Spa, New York, and teaches at Skidmore College.
