Kitsch Corner

Michael Wex’s much-praised book “Born to Kvetch” (St. Martin’s Press, 2005) was a noteworthy addition to the trove of tomes on the Jewish experience, and now fans can read snippets of Wex’s wisdom each and every day (beginning January 1, 2008, that is).

The “Born to Kvetch” calendar offers 366 (that’s not a misprint — 2008 is indeed a leap year) humorous kvetches, curses and insights into the history and roots of the Yiddish language.

$11.99; www.amazon.com.
