About the book
George and Laura get to the family house. The rest of the family has already arrived. George's mother comes out to greet them. Her name is Bar. She is a former First Lady and a farbisseneh. 'You are late, Georgie,' Bar says. 'Of course I am late,' George says, 'I am the President of the United States. I am a big macher.'
What do George and Laura Bush have in common with Dick and Jane? Well, both hail from prototypical WASP families. And, perhaps more to the point, both exhibit a natural resistance to moral complexity (i.e., reality). That's the premise of this hilarious new primer-style book in which George, Laura, and the entire Bush family communicate with uncharacteristic expressiveness, conveying shades of feeling and nuances of meaning that plain old English can't deliver - by peppering their conversation with Yiddishisms. Like all good primers, Yiddish with George and Laura tells a simple story - a family birthday party goes awry as a series of small crises erupts - and, in the end, important life lessons are imparted.
