Editorial Reviews

Review

"This guide is a pleasure to read, the result of Lambert's wry and breezy style."—Jewish Book World
(Jewish Book World)

"The usual truth is that reference books belong in libraries, but Josh Lambert's American Jewish Fiction is a notable exception. American readers—those Jewish, those not—should buy it and flip through the pages when looking for a good novel to buy."—JBooks.com
(JBooks.com)

"As they say, you can't tell the players without a scorecard. And this [American Jewish Fiction: A JPS Guide] is a fine way to keep the literary score."—Jewish Herald Voice
(Jewish Herald Voice)

"Lambert's evaluations and descriptions make the Jewish novel come alive."—15 Minutes Magazine

By Lawrence Goldman on February 2, 2009
Format: Paperback
Useful and entertaining survey of the unique and important contributions of Jewish writers to the American experience. Erudite but not pretentious. I read it cover to cover in one sitting.

Format: Paperback
Book clubbers and solitary readers alike will delight in this treasury of great 'reads' from the canon of American Jewish fiction. The 125 individual reviews are pithy and interesting, and the "Further Reading" comments at the end of each entry lead the reader in many intriguing directions. A thoughtful and informative introduction and useful appendices make this book a valuable reference work, but for lovers of fiction it is both a journey of sweet reminiscence ("ah yes, I remember enjoying that book when I was ony 14") and a road map to many future pleasures. Enjoy!
