Picks and Pans Review: American Masters: Isaac in America
In the premiere of its second season, American Masters follows Yiddish author Isaac Bashevis (The Magician of Lublin) Singer as he revisits the dying Coney Island cafeterias and now-abandoned homes he knew and wrote about as a young immigrant. Singer at 83 is simply delightful, but the show's a little disorganized; it could have used a narrator to tell us about Singer's life so that the great writer wouldn't have had to do all the work himself.
