Overview

Warm-hearted and brash, with an opinion about everything and a can-do attitude that infuses her with boundless energy and joy, Yente Telebente is a lively individual whose rich life vividly unfolds through a series of letters traded with friends and family.

We first meet Yente as a merry girl with the clear vision and steadfast determination to take her far beyond the streets of her home on New York's Lower East Side.

Yente's unique perspective of the world and her audaciously outspoken views are documented in lively correspondence that chronicle her coming-of-age, her struggle to attain middle-class security and her comfortable golden years happily ensconced in a Florida retirement community.

Yente expresses herself with infectious humor, feisty enthusiasm and scathing wit as we get a glimpse into the dynamics of her marriages and the depths of her enduring friendships. We come to appreciate her unconventional philosophies on health and happiness.

This hilarious novel brings a beloved character of Yiddish literature to a contemporary audience in a raucously entertaining narrative that portrays an unforgettably vibrant woman's journey through life.
