Notes from Around the Web
Howard Jacobson’s latest novel, The Finkler Question, was already on my tbr list. Adam Kirsch’s review only solidified my interest.
On a lighter note, if you’re starting to look for Chanukah gifts for the little ones, you may want to check out this list of new titles.
I am so excited for the next Jewish Book Council Twitter Book Club! The chosen book is Julie Orringer’s The Invisible Bridge; the author will participate; and the event will take place online on Tuesday, October 26.
Mazel Tov to author Max Apple on winning a Pew Fellowship (you may recall my appreciation for his collection, The Jew of Home Depot and Other Stories).
More about David Grossman and his newly translated novel, this time from The Jewish Week.
Now up on The Jewish Reader: Philip Roth’s Nemesis.
This will be my final post for ten days or so. I’m heading to Israel tomorrow night! I don’t expect to be online much (if at all) while I’m there, but I do anticipate returning with lots of discoveries to share. Shabbat shalom, and see you when I’m back!
