Product Details

Praise

“18 Yiddish short stories . . . newly translated into English. These stories offer a window into this canon for non-Yiddish speakers. Appended with a fascinating glossary of ‘untranslatables’ and notes on the original authors.” —Booklist Online

“The stories, seamlessly translated by a sizable team, are all a few pages in length and lend themselves to reading aloud and discussion. . . . Yiddishkeit that is entertaining, meaningful, and very much still relevant.” —Kirkus Reviews
