Author: The Jewish Daily Forward
The Forward is the most renowned Yiddish newspaper in the world. It welcomed generations of immigrants to the United States, brought them news of Europe and the Middle East, and provided them with everything from comic strips to noodle kugel recipes. It also published some of the most acclaimed Yiddish fiction writers of all time, including Nobel Prize laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer, Forward editor Abraham Cahan, and novelists Sholem Asch and Chaim Grade. Ezra Glinter and the Forward staff have combed through the archives to find the best stories published during the newspaper's 120-year history, from wartime novellas to avant-garde fiction to satirical sketches about immigrant life in New York. These stories, now in English for the first time, expressed the concerns of Yiddish writers and their millions of readers, including the challenges of immigration, both World Wars, and changing forms of Jewish identity.

A Finalist for the 2016 National Jewish Book Award Forty-two stories from America’s greatest Yiddish newspaper, in English for the first time. The Forward, founded in 1897, is the most renowned Yiddish newspaper in the world. It welcomed generations of immigrants to the United States, brought them news of Europe and the Middle East, and provided them with sundry comforts such as comic strips and noodle kugel recipes. It also published some of the most acclaimed Yiddish fiction writers of all time: Nobel Prize laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer on justice slyly being served when the governor of Lublin comes to town; celebrated Forward editor Abraham Cahan on how place and luck can change character; and Roshelle Weprinsky, setting her story in Florida, on the rupture between European parents and American children. Cahan described the newspaper as a “living novel,” with good reason. Taken together, these stories reveal the human side of the challenges that faced Jews throughout this time, including immigration, modernization, poverty, assimilation, the two world wars, and changing forms of Jewish identity. These concerns were taken up by a diverse group of writers, from novelists Sholem Asch and Chaim Grade to short-story writers like Lyala Kaufman and Miriam Karpilove. Ezra Glinter has combed through the archives to find the best stories published during the newspaper’s 120-year history, digging up such varied works as wartime novellas, avant-garde fiction, and satirical sketches about immigrant life in New York. Glinter’s introductions to the thematic sections and short biographies of the contributors provide insight into the concerns of not only the writers but also their avid readers. The collection has been rendered into English by today’s best Yiddish translators, who capture the sound of the authors and the subtleties of nuance and context.

Please note: This is the second edition to the previously entitled 'Love, Light and mermaid Tails.
Author: Fi Munro
Please note: This is the second edition to the previously entitled 'Love, Light and mermaid Tails.' It has four new chapters, new sections, a new foreword and updates throughout. Suitcases filled with medication. Life and death situations. Multiple organ removal. Risking everything to stay alive just one more day. And people still moan to you when they have a cold. Welcome to the life of a 'terminal' cancer patient. In January 2016 thirty-year-old Fi Munro was diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer. Told from day one that her cancer was incurable and 'terminal', Fi faced unimaginable pain, heartache and suffering as the life she'd dreamed of was suddenly pulled away from her. Yet in the wake of this news she did not wallow. Instead she discovered a remarkable inner strength, resilience and, above all, a very dark sense of humour. Years later and she is still here, having outlived, in her opinion, two 'very unreasonable' prognoses. How Long Have I Got? is her inspiring story. Honest, open and often tear-jerking this is everything you wanted to know - and some stuff you'll want to forget - about living with cancer and an important reminder that we are all terminal. Reading this will change your life forever. Fi Munro, Ph.D. is a multi award winning researcher, author, blogger, speaker and mentor recognised internationally for her presentations and articles on her journey and the importance of holistic health. She has been featured in two BBC documentaries, in TV and radio shows, and in newspaper and magazine articles across the globe. Today she is healthier and happier than ever before and believes cancer saved her life. She is currently training to be a shaman and is excited for what the future holds. www.fkmunro.com @fkmunro REVIEWS: 'Please read 'How Long Have I Got?' Fi has courageously chosen to share her experiences of becoming a warrior - of HAVING to become a warrior. Of having to almost fight for a correct diagnosis of ovarian cancer... and then to fight on with her own extraordinary armoury: joy, light and love. Her generosity in sharing her every step knows no bounds. If you or someone you know has just received a frightening diagnosis - please have this book as your lifeline. I wish my family had had the gift of Fi's beautifully written account eight years ago when the symptoms of my mother's ovarian cancer were dismissed. No more of 'brushing off'. No more dismissal. No more leaving the doctor's surgery without getting that referral for a scan, exam or test. Take courage and heart from Fi Munro. Oh yes, she'll make you laugh too.' - Sarah Greene, television personality 'Fi is a true cancer warrior and thriver. She has been to the brink, undergone potentially catastrophic surgery and emerged more herself than before. She finds light in darkness.' - Sophie Sabbage, bestselling author of The Cancer Whisperer and Lifeshocks - And How to Love Them 'Cancer is a scary word for most people. Putting 'ovarian' before it makes many clinicians sigh deeply because of the tough prognosis. Diagnosis often comes late. Raising awareness is vital and that's why wonderful women like Fi telling their stories is at the heart of what we do as a charity. Fi doesn't ask 'why me?' (statistically it really shouldn't be her), her call to arms is: 'this could be any of us so what can we all do?' Above everything, Fi shows us how to live well with cancer, not to be defined as potentially dying from it.' - Athena Lamnisos, CEO of The Eve Appeal 'Fi brings her distinctive voice and perpetual positivity to this wonderful book. Fi and Target Ovarian Cancer share a goal of raising awareness of ovarian cancer, yes - but more than that, of showing the world that you can live a full life after a diagnosis. She is an incredible, inspirational member of a wonderful community and I am full of admiration for all that she does.' - Annwen Jones, Chief Executive of Target Ovarian Cancer
