Description


"Somewhere between Isaac Bashevis Singer and Morey Amsterdam."—Kirkus Reviews

Two Jews were on a train: "All Eastern European Jewish jokes start this way, or almost," says Adam Biro, who has assembled this rich volume of such stories, tales in which—thanks to a masterful translation by Catherine Tihanyi—we can hear the voices of generations using humor to teach about the delicacy, anguish, and unpredictability of life itself.
