Summary: With joy and unrestrained kvelling, Random House AudioBooks announces a smartly updated new edition of Leo Rosten's classic celebration and exploration of the Yiddish language--the first time on audio!

From chutzpa to shmooze, oy vay to shelp, a wealth of Yiddish words have entered common American parlance, rolling off the tongues of Jews and non-Jews alike. More than a quarter of a century ago, Leo Rosten presented the first comprehensive and hilariously e ...show morentertaining lexicon of this colorful and deeply expressive language. The New Joys of Yiddish went on to become a perennial bestseller in both hardcover and paperback.

With the recent renaissance of interest in Yiddish, and in keeping with a language that embodies the variety and vibrancy of life itself, this new edition brings Rosten's masterful work up to date. Revised by editor Lawrence Bush, in close consultation with Rosten's daughters, it retains the spirit of the original--with its wonderful jokes, tidbits of cultural history, Talmudic and Biblical references, and tips on pronunciation--and enhances it with hundreds of new entries and thoughtful commentary on how Yiddish has evolved over the years.

The New Joys of Yiddish is nothing less than a mitzvah ("a 'good work,' a virtuous, kind, considerate, ethical deed") for those who loved the original book and for those discovering the pleasures of Yiddish for the first time. ...show less
