Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0684833476, Paperback)In their touching story, two Jewish grandmothers--Tessie and Pearlie--share their wisdom, knowledge, and recipes to die for. Still close to their immigrant past and hardened by wars, the Depression, and discrimination, they teach us about living. And dying. They are the last of a breed--a generation passing but not likely to be forgotten.
