In his award-winning style, Eisner portrays the notorious villain as a troubled and complex man and tells the tale of his life and of London's Ashkenazic community in Fagin's own words. Fagin the Jew is part biography, part polemic, and entirely engaging, and Eisner's empathy for this mistreated character lends an extraordinary richness to his artwork, ever evocative and complex.
In a fresh, compelling look at prejudice, poverty, and anti-Semitism, Fagin the Jew blends image and prose in an unforgettable examination of history.
