Beautifully packaged, it is an ideal Mothers Day or Bat-Mitzvah gift.- This volume contains translations of Yiddish stories from eminent scholars--including an Isaac Bashevis Singer story that has never before been published in English--and well-known tales that Jewish readers everywhere love.- As bestsellers such as Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer (Houghton Mifflin, 4/02) and For the Relief of Unbearable Urges by Nathan Englander (Knopf, 1999) have demonstrated, there is a strong interest in Jewish stories.- Yiddish culture and music have seen a resurgence in recent years. NPRs All Things Considered aired a series of highly acclaimed documentaries about the Yiddish Radio Project and Klezmer musicians regularly play at top alternative venues.
