About the Author

Born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1908, Harry Kemelman was the creator of perhaps one of the most famous religious sleuths: Rabbi David Small. His writing career began with short stories for Ellery Queen`s Mystery Magazine featuring New England college professor Nicky Welt, the first of which, "The Nine Mile Walk," is considered to be a classic (the Welt stories were later grouped into a collection with the same title). The Rabbi Small series began in 1964, with Friday the Rabbi Slept Late. It went on to become a bestseller, and won Kemelman an Edgar for "Best First Novel" in 1965. Kemelman died in 1996.

Harry Kemelman (English Harry Kemelman ) November 24, 1908, Boston, Massachusetts - December 15, 1996, Marblehead, Massachusetts American writer, master of ironic detective, professor of English language and literature. Graduated from Harvard University with a degree in English literature. He taught at American schools and universities. He turned to a writing career in the post-war years: the first detective story in a series about Nicky Welt, a professor from New England, appeared in print in 1947 and is recognized today as a classic of the genre. The stories were published from 1947 to 1970, they are typical puzzling riddles, twisted and cleverly composed, and Nicky solves them like chess problems. A cycle of detective novels with David Small, a rabbi in a small American town - like Chesterton`s father Brown, brought real fame to Kemelman. Rabbi Small, in principle, also applies logic, but from the Talmud, and it turns out so unexpectedly to the point and just interesting, unusual, but great. In addition, the novels are very rich in everyday life and are simply curious, as a multifaceted description of an entire cultural layer, as Saul Bellow and Philip Roth did in the mainstream. The novels have been published since 1964.

The Week of Rabbi David Small, seven novels written "by day of the week" - from Friday to Thursday (1964-1978), and later Kemelman added five more novels to the "week", the last one was published in the year of death author - and they all invariably diverged in huge numbers. Kemelman`s constant plot move - Rebbe David quarrels with influential people in the community just before the extension of the contract, he faces a real danger of losing his job, but here a crime occurs in the town, the Rebbe uncovers him, and as a side effect, his conflict with the community is settled. Kemelman knew what he was writing about: writing was his second occupation, but by his main profession he was just a rabbi. Frankly, the scenes of the Rebbe`s quarrel with the community are written out in his most vivid way, one feels that the question is painful for the author, and Rebbe Harry has something to say to the readers. The story "The Nine Mile Walk" was filmed in 2003, based on the novels about Rabbi Small - a television series was filmed.  Harry Kemelman , Wikipedia , IMDb .  Bibliography The Rabbi Small Novels - Rabbi Small 1964 - Friday the Rabbi Slept Late - Friday. The rabbi is suspected; On Friday the rabbi woke up late; Friday When the Rabbi Sleeps - Edgar Alan Poe Prize for First Novel. 1966 - Saturday the Rabbi Went Hungry - Saturday. The rabbi sits down at the table; On Saturday the rabbi felt hungry; Saturday Rabbi Stayed Hungry 1969 - Sunday, the Rabbi Stayed Home - Sunday. The rabbi stayed at home; The rabbi spent Sunday at home; The Rabbi stayed home on Sunday 1972 - Monday The Rabbi Took Off - Monday. The rabbi flew to Israel; The Rebbe goes on vacation; The rabbi left on Monday; Monday the Rabbi escaped 1973 - Tuesday the Rabbi Saw Red - Tuesday the Rabbi went into a rage 1976 - Wednesday the Rabbi Got Wet - Wednesday the Rabbi got wet 1978 - Thursday the Rabbi Walked Out - Thursday the Rabbi walked out 1981 - Conversations with Rabbi Small 1985 - Someday the Rabbi Will Leave 1987 - One Fine Day the Rabbi Bought a Cross - One day the rabbi bought a cross 1992 - The Day the Rabbi Resigned 1996 - That Day the Rabbi Left Town The Nicky Welt Stories - Nick Welt (Nicky Welt) 1947 - The Nine Mile Walk - Nine miles; Nine-mile walk; Walk in the Rain 1950 - The Straw Man 1952 - The Ten O & # 039; Clock Scholar - Cyrus Cartwright Watch 1950 - End Play 1962 - Time and Time Again (The Man with Two Watches) 1963 - The Whistling Tea Kettle (The Adelphi Bowl) 1962 - The Bread and Butter Case (A Winter`s Tale) 1967 - The Man on the Ladder 1967 - Collected in The Nine Mile Walk Non-fiction 1970 - Common Sense in Education
