“In these splendid volumes, Emanuel Goldsmith as editor and Barnett Zumoff as translator have combined their enormous talents to create a first-ever anthology of Yiddish literature in America-fiction, poetry, and essays.” -Professor Curt Leviant, editor, Masterpieces of Hebrew Literature: Selections from Two Thousand Years of Jewish Creativity “Finally, an anthology of Yiddish poetry, prose, and essays that introduces the English reader to the richness of Yiddish literature in America. This collection includes well-known authors like Sholem Aleichem and I. B. Singer and others like Yoni Fayn, Melekh Ravitsh and Dora Teytlboym largely unknown in English translation. Barnett Zumoff's careful and fluid translations take readers on a literary and cultural odyssey that will educate, surprise, and delight!” -Sheva Zucker, author of Yiddish: An Introduction to the Language, Literature & Culture, Vols. 1 and 2; editor of the Yiddish magazine Afn Shvel “An indispensable compendium, filled with treasures reflecting brilliant encounters between Old World and New.” -Jeremy Dauber, Professor, Columbia University, Yiddish Studies Department “An important contribution to the field, bringing unknown treasures of Yiddish literature and thought to new readers, and for that we all owe the Editor and Translator a debt of gratitude.” -Aaron Lansky, president, National Yiddish Book Center, Amherst, Massachusetts
