Michael Wex - Just Say Nu: Fluent Yiddish in One Little Word
Yiddish is alive and well on Comedy Central and beloved police shows, in movies, and on radio.  Michael Wex, author of BORN TO KVETCH, the best selling book on Yiddish ever, is back by popular demand with new ways to tickle our funny bones.  Noted as a "Yiddish national treasure," Wex is one of the leading figures in the current revival of Yiddish, bringing the language into everyday usage.  In his new book, JUST SAY NU: FLUENT YIDDISH IN ONE LITTLE WORD, he teaches us how to schmooze our way through everyday life--meeting and greeting, eating and drinking, praising and finding fault, talking politics, and talking trash.  The ultimate entertainer, Wex is a novelist, professor, translator, lecturer, and performer who brings Yiddish to a wide audience through his appealing, yet informative programs.  Whether he's revaling the real origins of well-known Jewish customs or explaining how the Three Stooges  helped bring Yiddish to millions of unsuspecting children, Wex will turn your world into a different - and much funnier - place.  As they say, "You don't have to be a Yiddish speaker to understand and love Yiddish...in fact, you don't even have to be Jewish!"
