BROOKLYN author asks: “What does FLABLUNGET mean?

“The Flablunget Chronicles” by Zisa Moglen

Short Stories, Poetry, Recipes and Yiddish Words

(See July 30th posting— Flablunget will be the Yiddish word of the day tomorrow).

BROOKLYN author asks:

Why does the book title contain a Yiddish word, Flablunget.

Hint: 

The author was a divorced single parent and there were days when she felt flablunget.  In many instances, Yiddish describes feelings better than any other language.  See Leo Rosten’s book, The Joys of Yiddish and also, Max Wetx, Born to Kvetch.
