Legendary Jazz and Blues singer, songwriter, pianist, and actress, Hadda Brooks (1916 - 2002), passed away on November 21, 2002 from natural causes.
HADDA BROOKS, hailed as the "The Queen of Boogie Woogie" and "The Empress of the Torch Blues", began her recording career in 1945 with "Swingin' the Boogie" (the first release on Modern Records - BEFORE other artists like John Lee Hooker and B.B. King recorded for Modern).

As Hadda points out, "despite his attempt to emphasize the beauty of Krochmalna Street and its inhabitants, especially his father, Yitskhok was faced with the same issues that had occupied Israel Joshua and Hinde Esther in their recreations of the past.
Hadda's study counterpoints Bashevis's fraternal encomiums with his intense sibling rivalry, stressing what Bashevis always denied: "In 1944, he experienced an artistic dream together with a personal nightmare: he got the upper hand in his struggle with the gigantic influence of his brother, but he did so literally over Israel Joshua's dead body" (Hadda, 108).
Suffering from what Hadda diagnoses as a "type of epilepsy known as partial complex seizures" (Hadda, 43), desperate for love in a family where neither parent was capable of offering it, Hinde Esther turned to her brothers, becoming "the source of warmth and affection for the rest of the family...

Hadda's depiction of Isaac Bashevis Singer (1904-91) as a sophisticated, self-conscious artist won't surprise admirers of The Family Moskat, Yentl, and his other works of fiction.
Isaac, Hadda tells us, was a strange mixture of his weakly emotional father and coldly tough, rational mother - the grandson and son of rabbis whose father was far less suited to the role of judge and advisor than his mother.
Hadda the Yiddishist and fellow woman is unable to pick up anything like this juicy from her interviews with Alma or the remaining friends, lovers, haters.

 UW Press - : Isaac Bashevis Singer: A Life, Janet Hadda
Isaac Bashevis Singer brought the vibrant milieu of pre-Holocaust Polish Jewry to the English-speaking world through his subtle psychological insight, deep sympathy for the eccentricities of Jewish folk custom, and unerring feel for the heroism of everyday life.
His novels, including The Family Moskat and Enemies: A Love Story, and his short stories, such as "Yentl" and "Gimpel the Fool," prove him a consummate storyteller and probably the greatest Yiddish writer of the twentieth century.
Janet Hadda is the author of Yankev Glatshteyn and Passionate Women, Passive Men: Suicide in Yiddish Literature.
