Jewish Literary Links for Shabbat

Photo Credit: Reut Miryam Cohen

Every Friday morning My Machberet presents an assortment of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.

  • In Jewish Woman magazine, Sandee Brawarsky introduces a slew of fall books, including Dara Horn’s latest novel, Jillian Cantor’s Margot, and Ruchama King Feuerman’s In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist, all of which are on my tbr list.
  • And speaking of Dara Horn–icymi, you may want to read her essay in last week’s New York Times Book Review.
  • Etgar Keret has annotated for one of his stories. (via Galleycat)
  • Adam Kirsch reviews Jonathan Lethem’s Dissident Gardens, a novel that “traces three generations of an American Jewish family, showing how its tradition of radicalism mutates to meet the fashions of each new decade, and leaving us with the question of whether that radicalism still exists in any meaningful form.”
  • Shabbat shalom and shana tova!

    1. A good Shabbat read is the latest edition of Jewishfiction.net. Produced by Dr. Nora Gold of Canada, this international publication includes new American and Canadian fiction, as well as translations of Israeli fiction and fiction from other countries. Stories by renowned writers, such as A.B. Yehoshua, are also published.
