Summary "Each of the twenty-one stories is an evocative "reporting" of the narrator's encounters with people who daily ride Jerusalem's bus lines, among them, housewives, Chasids, a blind man, a shoemaker - bus drivers themselves. The tone of Birstein's Yiddishized Hebrew is wry and empathic, savoring the individuality of these many characters"-- Provided by publisher.
