Description

Fully illustrated and complete with over 100 interviews, this engrossing oral history truly captures the flavor of what Jewish comedians used to call the Borscht Belt and re-creates a world now gone-a New York State vacation haven in the middle decades of this century primarily to New York City Jews-and is sure to take readers on a sunny cruise down memory lane.
