Notes from Around the Web

  • While I was away, Briton Howard Jacobson won the Man Booker Prize for his novel, The Finkler Question. I almost missed this New York Times profile of Jacobson–thanks to my friend B.J. Epstein for making sure that I caught it!
  • Another item from across the pond: a lovely post about Allegra Goodman’s latest novel, The Cookbook Collector.
  • Dara Horn reviews Cynthia Ozick’s new novel, Foreign Bodies.
  • The Boston Bibliophile reviews Joan Leegant’s novel, Wherever You Go.
  • Liel Leibovitz introduces readers to Dolly City, “the influential novel by Israeli author Orly Castel-Bloom…released this month in a superb English translation by Dalya Bilu….”
  • Most reviews of David Grossman’s new novel have been glowing. Daphne Merkin’s take is different.
  • The Hebrew literature department at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is “in genuine crisis.”
  • On the Scribblers on the Roof website: three poems by Michael Jackman.
  • As mentioned on my other blog yesterday, my short-story collection, Quiet Americans, has just received its first review (and it’s a positive one!).
  • Shabbat shalom!
