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

  • Discovered via Fiction & Film for French Historians: Julie Kalman reviews An Officer and a Spy, a novel by Robert Harris that is based on the Dreyfus Affair. The book will be released in the U.S. late next month.
  • Beautiful poem, “Hineini,” by David M. Harris (scroll down).
  • Leah Falk writes about Kenneth Bonert’s novel The Lion Seeker, which, Falk explains, “tells a Jewish immigration story that never touches America, but nonetheless takes in hand this vulnerability and other difficulties in the literature and public narratives of immigration.”
  • Many thanks to Diana Bletter for hosting the December Jewish Book Carnival.
  • Finally, and in case you missed it: some smart writing about a stupid boycott.
  • Shabbat shalom.

    1. Fascinating review of the Dreyfus affair book- had a class with Michael Burns in my college days, which sparked my interest in the article – exciting to see his book mentioned! Will keep my eye out for the novel.
