This book is certain to appeal to the millions of Jewish women interested in Jewish literature and the writings of Cynthia Ozick, Francine Prose, and Grace Paley. Beautifully packaged, it is an ideal Mother’s 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 and For the Relief of Unbearable Urges by Nathan Englander have demonstrated, there is a strong interest in Jewish stories.

Yiddish culture and music have seen a resurgence in recent years. NPR’s All Things Considered aired a series of highly acclaimed documentaries about the Yiddish Radio Project and Klezmer musicians regularly play at top alternative venues.
