Nº 7.- Gad NASSI, ed., En tierras ajenas yo me vo murir, Barcelona, 2005. 476 pgs., illust., (17 x 24). ISBN 84-930570-6-1. 250 copies. Price 22€.
Thirty six authors have participated in the most ambitious Judeo-Spanish anthology of memoirs, tales and legends of Sephardic heritage. They represent the variety of the Judeo-Spanish language used by the Sephardic communities of the Mediterranean rim: multiple registers and tonalities that the reader will be able to perceive.

This is a pleasant, varied read, which immediately captivates through its simplicity. The authors want to honor this unique and cosmopolitan language and those who identify themselves as its privileged spokespeople.
