"A serio-comic novel, King of Yiddish immerses the reader into the life of Shmulik Gafni, an Israeli professor of Yiddish. Two contrasting life natrratives plague Gafni: his etended, obsessive search in Poland for the man who mudered his farther in the notorious Kielce program, and Gafni's infatuation with Malina, a beauteous non-Jewish Polish linguist in Jerusalem to study Yiddish. Guess who her private tutor is? Rumors fly. Will synchronicity also fly? "--- p.[4] of the cover.
