Editorial Reviews

"Utterly original . . . Dauber's rehabilitation of Old Yiddish Literature, his attempt to rescue it from the German and Italian ghettos, is something markedly new.  If you love to be shepherded through exotic realms, if you are excited by big ideas, this is the book for you."—David Roskies, Jewish Theological Seminary
