“Jinny the Carrier” is a 1913 novel by British author Israel Zangwill (1864–1926). Contents include: “Jinny On Her Rounds”, “Jinny At Her Homes”, “Will On His Way”, “Will At Home”, “Sunday At Chipstone”, “Comedy Of Corydon And Amaryllis”, etc. Zangwill was a leading figure in cultural Zionism during the 19th century, as well as close friend of father of modern political Zionism, Theodor Herzl. In later life, he renounced the seeking of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. A notable portion of Zangwill's work concentrated on ghetto life and earned him the nickname "the Dickens of the Ghetto". Other notable works by this author include: “Dreamers of the Ghetto” (1898), “Merely Mary Ann” (1913), and “Ghetto Tragedies” (1899). This novel will appeal to fans of vintage fiction and is not to be missed by collectors of Zangwill's impressive work.
This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with an introductory chapter from “English Humourists of To-Day” by J. A. Hammerton.
