Review: Fagin the Jew

Fagin the Jew
Fagin the Jew by Will Eisner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great book! One of the more disturbing things in literature is lack of humanized ethnic characters. Eister does a good job of giving us a believable backstory for one of the more egregiously negative portrayals of a Jewish character. When Fagin meets Oliver, the story tracks along with Dickens' version of things exactly. Well done.
