The Yiddish Hobbit
Here are the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, translated into Mame-loshn. Translator Barry Goldstein is on the editorial board of the recent Comprehensive Yiddish-English Dictionary (Indiana University Press), and his translation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic is the only Yiddish translation to be approved by the Tolkien Estate. You can find Der Hobit through Harvard Book Store's Print-On-Demand service. This is Middle-earth as you've never seen it!
'One of the best things I've ordered on the Internet recently is [Goldstein's] Yiddish translation of The Hobbit.' - Ezra Glinter, The Paris Review
'Goldstein remains committed to ensuring that his own favorites make their way into Yiddish.' - Natalie Schachar, Tablet Magazine
