“ Like all good stories inside the Yiddish tradition, the pleasure of Geras' collection comes as considerably from the telling as from what happens. ” — Booklist, Starred This framing of the stories emphasizes their continuing pleasure across generations; and customs, idioms, traditions, even recipes that the Jews brought with them from Eastern Europe are an unobtrusive component of the telling. These are stories within stories: the narrator remembers herself as a young kid hearing them from her grandmother, as they cooked, hung up laundry, ready for the Sabbath, or cleaned property for Passover.

Inspired by the everyday trinkets and treasures in her apartment, a grandmother tells her curious granddaughter stories according to their Russian Jewish heritage. Even though cutting up apples for a strudel, Grandmother recalls the tale of a very rich, very greedy merchant who learned a lesson at the table of King Solomon. Choosing among carnations, gladioli, and roses in Moshe's flower shop tends to make Grandmother think of a garden of talking--and bickering--flowers. An old tin button box reminds Grandmother about the poor farmer who outwitted a Czar.
