  • "Diese lebenspralle Roman erzählt die Geschichte von Itsik Malpesch: von seiner Kindheit als Sohn eines jüdischen Gänsedauenfabrikverwalters im russischen Kischinjow, von seiner unerschütterlichen Liebe zur Metzgerstochter Sascha Bimko, die er nur vom Foto kennt, von seiner Leidenscahft für die jiddische Sprache und Literatur und nicht zuletzt von der aberwitzigen Odyssee, die ihn nach Amerika bringt."
  • "Summer, sweltering, 1996. A book warehouse in western Massachusetts. A man at the beginning of his adult life -- and the end of his career rope -- becomes involved with a woman, a language, and a great lie that will define his future. Most auspiciously of all, he runs across Itsik Malpesh, a ninetysomething Russian immigrant who claims to be the last Yiddish poet in America. When a set of accounting ledgers in which Malpesh has written his memoirs surfaces -- twenty-two volumes brimming with adventure, drama, deception, passion, and wit -- the young man is compelled to translate them, telling Malpesh's story as his own life unfolds, and bringing together two paths that coincide in shocking and unexpected ways.--from Publisher description (http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0838/2007049787-d.html)."@en
