The Autobiography of Pesach'ke Burstein, Yiddish Matinee Idol

by Pesach Burstein, Lillian Lux Burstein
     
 
These memoirs of Yiddish vaudevillian Burstein describe his early life in Poland; his career on the stage in Poland, the United States, and Israel; and his marriage to American actress Lillian Lux. Although the majority of the work consists largely of warm remembrances of the world of Yiddish theatre, darker themes of European politics occasionally enter the stage.
