Bubbehby Sabina Berman, Andrea G. Labinger
A young girl pays homage to the grandmother who has shown her the beauty and subtlety of life in this semi-autobiographical novel, while the depth of a complicated life as a displaced Jew in a the mostly Catholic country of Mexico is gradually revealed. Providing a fascinating glimpse into the little-known world of a Mexican Jewry and touching upon the inescapable influences of place and personhood, the book is enriched with the author's own experiences and includes translations and explanations of several Yiddish words.
