Haikus for Jews: For You, a Little Wisdom Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why is this haiku book different from all other haiku books?

For centuries, the Japanese haiku has been one of the world's most dazzling poetic forms. In just three short lines, it captures the sublime beauty of nature--the croak of the bullfrog, the buzzing of the dragonfly, the shriek of the cicada, the scream of the cormorant. Now, with Haikus for Jews, there is finally a collection that celebrates the many advantages of staying indoors.

        

Inspired by ancient Zen teachings and timeless Jewish noodging, this masterful work is filled with insights that will make you exclaim, "Ah!" or at least "Oy!" Whether you are Jewish or you simply enjoy a good kosher haiku, these chai-kus (so called because of their high chutzpah content) are certain to amuse. What's more, with each poem limited to seventeen syllables, Haikus for Jews is perfect for people in a hurry. Find out why God has made these The Chosen Haikus.

About the Author

David M. Bader is a writer in New York City, a pursuit that raises the eternal question, "From this he makes a living?" He is not even distantly related to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, though he insists on referring to her as "Aunt Ruth."
