Back at last

February 26, 2013

Realized I haven’t posted since July, happily that’s not because I haven’t published since. . in fact, I have, quite a bit. Since the last posting I reviewed Marco Roth’s “The Scientists” for the Forward, Steve Stern’s “The Book of Mischief” for The New Republic, “Jews and Words” by Amos Oz and Fania Oz-Salzberger and Beth Bosworth’s “The Source of Life and Other Stories” for the Times Literary Supplement.. And a few more coming out in the next month. Will post links to review section shortly.

Some new reviews. . .

July 3, 2012

Since the last posting I reviewed Anouk Markovits’s “I Am Forbidden” for The Forward, and Clarice Lispector’s “A Breath of Life” for The San Francisco Chronicle. Both great books, see the reviews + a pdf of my Halkin review under “Reviews.”

Since the last posting I reviewed Anouk Markovits’s “I Am Forbidden” for The Forward, and Clarice Lispector’s “A Breath of Life” for The San Francisco Chronicle. Both great books, see the reviews + a pdf of my Halkin review under “Reviews.” 

Have some more reviews out in the Forward since I posted last, Ben Marcus’s “The Flame Alphabet” and Ellen Ullman’s “By Blood” see both under “Reviews.”

In other exciting news I had my first piece published in a major mainstream (even highbrow, if I dare say so. . .) publication. My review of Hillel Halkin’s debut novel “Melisande! What Are Dreams?” appears in this week’s issue of the TLS (April 25 issue), the self-described “leading international forum for literary culture.” Thing is the review is not available online. . . so you’ll have to buy a copy. . .

Maybe it’s time to start blogging. . . still deciding. Until then see the review tab for latest reviews, including, most recently, my piece on Peter Orner’s Love and Shame and Love here.

Off to Limmudfest in late August, where I’ll be leading sessions on Prophecy and Madness. . .
