This is a serious yet funny look at a language that both shaped and was shaped by those who spoke Yiddish. From tukhes, to goy, meshugener to kvetch, Yiddish words have permeated and transformed English as well. Written by Michael Wex, a novelist, university teacher and translator. He has been hailed as a “Yiddish national treasure” and is one of the leading lights in the current revival of Yiddish, lecturing widely on Yiddish and Jewish culture. He lives and “kvetches” in Toronto. 302 pages.
