More than 25 years ago, Leo Rosten gave America its first authoritative and hilariously entertaining lexicon of Yiddish. The New Joys of Yiddish brings Rosten's masterful work up to date. Revised for the first time ever by editor 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 tips on pronunciation - and enhances it with hundreds of new entries, thoughtful commentary on how Yiddish has evolved over the years, and an invaluable new English-to-Yiddish index. It also includes wondrous and amusing illustrations by renowned artist and cartoonist R. O. Blechamn.
