Recipient of the MacArthur "genius" fellowship and founder of the National Yiddish Book Center, Lansky recounts his efforts to rescue the world's abandoned Yiddish-language books before they pass out of existence.

    The narrator has a fine Yiddish pronunciation—a must for this book—but overall he is a bit lackluster. The book itself is enthralling. Love it so much (though it gets a little list-y 2/3 of the way through.)
