Sholom Aleichem is the greatest Yiddish writer of modern times--a storyteller and humorist of world stature. In this book, two well-known critics have brought together 22 of Sholom Aleichem's cleverest and most profound, funniest and most heartwarming stories. Twelve of the stories are newly translated, including material the previous translators chose to omit; three appear in English for the very first time. The result is a new Sholom Aleichem: richer, more complex, a writer worthy of comparison with the masters of modern literature.
