KIRKUS REVIEW

The last work of the famous Jewish humorist who has at times been dubbed the Yiddish Mark Twain. His people as he writes of them were immigrants who came from Russia to New York in the early 1900's and it is more in the vein of a loving and meticulous description of their mores than in suspense or social import, that the book will find attraction for readers. The wealth of funny adventures and the humorous situations met by Mottell and his family as they cross Europe and the Atlantic may make a good book to dip into, depending on the taste.
