Publisher Comments:

A classic work revisited and a testament to the beauty and endurance of the Mame-loshn (mother tongue) through the trials and tribulations of Americanization.

Forty-two stories represent the brilliant and poignant work of Sholem Aleichem, Abraham Raisin, and Joseph Opatoshu, among others.
