Notes from Around the Web: Jewish Literary Links for Shabbat

  • Adam Langer likes David Bezmozgis’s new novel. A lot.
  • This New York Times article describes eating disorders among the Orthodox–and spotlights memoirist Naomi Feigenbaum.
  • A highlight of this week: chatting with my Jewish Book Council hosts and all the participants who stopped by the Twitter Book Club discussion of my story collection, Quiet Americans.
  • Another highlight: attending a preview performance of the new musical, The People in the Picture.
  • Finally, for the Sabbath, enjoy Marge Piercy’s poem, “Wellfleet Shabbat.”
  • Shabbat shalom, and chag Pesach!
