Book Overview

I'm not hanging noodles on your ears. In Moscow, this curious, engagingly colorful assertion is common parlance, but unless you're Russian your reaction is probably Say what? The same idea in English is equally odd: I'm not pulling your leg. Both mean: Believe me. As author Jag Bhalla demonstrates, these amusing, often hilarious phrases provide a unique perspective on how different cultures perceive and describe the world. Organized by theme-food, love, romance, and many more-they embody cultural traditions and attitudes, capture linguistic nuance, and shed fascinating light on the whole ball of wax. For example, when English-speakers are hard at work, we're nose to the grindstone, but industrious Chinese toil with liver and brains spilled on the ground and busy Indians have no time to die. If you're already fluent in 10 languages, you probably won't need this book, but you'll get a kick out of it anyhow; for the rest of us, it's a must. Either way, this surprising, often thought-provoking little tome is gift-friendly in appearance, a perfect impulse buy for word lovers, travelers, and anyone else who enjoys looking at life in a riotous, unusual way. And we're not hanging noodles from your ear.
