Description
 
Humorist, novelist, journalist, magazine editor, & Yiddish maven, Leo Rosten has left a legacy of work that continues to gladden the hearts of readers of magazines & books. Here, Rosten explores the rich & hilarious language of Yiddish -- is there a better vocabulary of insults in any other tongue? -- & illustrates through stories, jokes, & parables the tradition & history of the Jewish people. Garnished with stories, jokes, parables, epigrams, acerbities & Talmudic insights, the book takes us on an illuminating side trip into the faith, folklore, tradition, genius, history, & of course, language, of the Jewish people. “This is a book to dip into again & again.”
