BeschreibungThe nearly 300 stories in this lovely volume are from Sephardic oral literature and ethnic culture. They were told in their original language, Judeo-Spanish (Ladino), and documented over 21 years. From 17 countries, including the United States, they come together in this first-ever collection of Joha stories to appear in English.
