La promo du moment
That's the premise of this hilarious new primer-style book in which George, Laura, and the entire Bush family communicate with uncharacteristic expressiveness, conveying shades of of feeling and nuances of meaning that plain old English can't deliver--by peppering their conversatuon with Yiddishisms.
See George's mother.
Her name is Bar.
She wears a lot of pearls and is a farbisseneh.
"You are late, George," Bar says.
"Of course I am late," George says.
"I am the President of the United States.
I am a big macher."
Like all good primers, YIDDISH WITH GEORGE AND LAURA tells a simple story--and, in the end, important life lessons are imparted.
