Words of the Week

“A passion for Jewish peoplehood — for the collective identity and survival of the Jewish people, and a concern for the actual individual Jewish people who make up the peoplehood — requires the inconvenient act of caring about the survival and safety of Jews everywhere regardless of the version of antisemitism that they face or that they fear.”

Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Three quick things:

1. Busy writing up a talk that I’ll be presenting at a conference next week.

2. The latest addition to my “brief book reviews” is a timely read just ahead of the Veterans Day holiday: FIRE AND FORGET: SHORT STORIES FROM THE LONG WAR edited by Roy Scranton and Matt Gallagher (Da Capo Press).

Question and answer from the piece linked just above.
