In the Land of Happy Tears: Yiddish Tales for Modern Times

(3) 4-6 Illustrated by Aitch. A series of early- and mid-twentieth-century Yiddish tales have been translated into accessible English. The stories, which are grouped by theme and often include fantasy elements, combine with a thorough introduction to provide a sense of Yiddish culture. The ethereal-feeling black-and-white illustrations that open each section are well suited to the tone of the collection. Glos.
