Ellis Weiner has been an editor of National Lampoon, a columnist for Spy, and a contributor to many magazines, including The New Yorker and the New York Times Magazine. He lives in Pennsylvania.


Barbara Davilman lives in Los Angeles, where she writes for television.
Jane is in real estate.

Today is Saturday.


Jane has an open house.

She must schlep the Open House signs to the car.

See Jane schlep.

Schlep, Jane. Schlep.

Schlep, schlep, schlep.

In text that captures the unque rhythms of the original Dick and Jane readers, and in 35 all-new illustrations, a story unfolds in which Dick and Jane--hero and heroine of the classic books for children that generations of Americans have used when learning to read--manage to express shades of feeling and nuances of meaning that ordinary English just can't deliver. How? By speaking Yiddish, employing terms that convey an attitude--part plucky self-assertion, part ironic fatalism. When Dick schmoozes, when Jane kvetches, when their children fress noodles at a Chinese restaurant, the clash of cultures produces genuine hilarity.

  • This is hilarious!

    For the Baby boomers, this is a nostalgic gift to give someone. Of course, it helps to know some Yiddish...great gift for a Jewish friend or relative. I was quite amused and bought several for friends and relatives.

    This was a terrible book! I was so looking forward to it, but WHAT a disappointment.

    I got the book as a present for my mom. The book is great and very funny. It arrived with 3 pages of blurry type, which was a pain, but Overstock made the return and exchange relatively easy, though my mom had to take the book to UPS to send it back. I would have preferred if it could have been picked up from the residence. But still, Overstock was very cooperative with the return and exchange.
