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

  • “It is my deepest wish that I have honoured those who were lost – including my grandfather – with this novel.” Suzanne Reisman explains what having her novel manuscript longlisted for the Bath Novel Award means to her.
  • This week brought the June Jewish Book Carnival, hosted by Life Is Like a Library.
  • Israeli author Etgar Keret is making the rounds promoting his new book, a memoir. Listen to his interview with Terry Gross.
  • Over on the Fig Tree Books blog, I introduce a new review of work by author Gerald Green (1922-2006).
  • And also Fig Tree-related: Enter this Goodreads giveaway for the next FTB title, Ben Nadler’s The Sea Beach Line.
  • Shabbat Shalom.
