Synopsis: More than a quarter of a century ago, Leo Rosten presented the first comprehensive and hilarioius lexicon of this colourful and deeply expressive language. Said "to give body and soul to the Yiddish language", The Joys of Yiddish went on to become an indispensable tool for writers, journalists, politicians and students, as well as a perennial bestseller. Now this classic has been revised and updated by editor Lawrence Bush in collaboration with Rosten's daughters. It retains the spirit of the original - with its wonderful jokes, titbits of cultural history, Talmudic and Biblical references, and tips on pronunciation - and enhances it with hundreds of new entries, thougtful commentary on how Yiddish has evolved over the years, and an invaluable new English-to-Yiddish index.

About the Author: The late Leo Rosten was born in Lodz in Poland. His family emigrated to the USA when he was three and he lived there for the rest of his life. He was the author of the Hyman Kaplan books, and countless other books, articles and screenplays. He died in 1997. Lawrence Bush is the author of several books on American Judaism and lives in New York City.
