"Fran Ross has a witty way with words-Yiddish, black dialect, puns-and she strews them exuberantly throughout her episodic story, along with lists, tables, drawings, equations, menus ('Gefuellte Melonen') and Q-and-A exams." --Publishers Weekly

Comics could take any number of passages for "stand-up" routines today.
I read it for a class at UCLA and give huge credit to the people
who rediscovered this book. It is sad that Fran Ross passed away
before her book got the attention that it deserves.
