A fool's errand?

I am new to this community. And even though it seems evident that it is not a very active one, I wanted to ask a question by way of introduction. Maybe it will inspire and answer.
When I was very young I read Isaac Bashevis Singer's stories about the shtetl of Chelm, a village of fools, which I enjoyed greatly, but I never picked up any of his more serious works.
Today, I learned that The Library of America collection is releasing his complete works and was reminded of him, his image was brought to the surface. Their edition is some 3000 pages, extensive and inclusive.
My question is simply this: Could anyone recommend a work of I.B. Singer's to start with?
Thank you very much.
