The New Joys of Yiddish brings Leo Rosten's masterful work up to date. Revised for the first time by Lawrence Bush, in close consultation with Rosten's daughters, it retains the spirit of the original--with its wonderful jokes, tidbits of cultural history, Talmudic and biblical references--and is enhanced by hundreds of new entries and thoughtful commentary on how Yiddish has evolved over the years, as well as clever illustrations by R.O. Blechman
