Many Eastern European jokes begin "Two Jews were travelling on a train...", as do many of the charming and hilarious conversations in this book. Adam Biro recounts these tales, where the characters, old and young, gossip and speak about everything from the banalities of the world to the unspeakable evils of existence. The tales convey their own history, we can hear Biro voice and those of generations past, as the tales teach, through humour, about the important issues in life: love, friendship, self-righteousness, narrow-mindedness, and the unpredicatbility of life itself. As a whole these tales form a record of the sensibilities of an entire people.
