    Abstract: Der Schöffling & Co. Verlag präsentiert den 2010 im Original erschienenen Roman "Witz" des US-amerikanischen Autors Joshua Cohen (zuletzt "Auftrag für Moving Kings", ID-B 36/19) in hervorragender deutscher Übersetzung. Hauptfigur Benjamin ist der einzige Sohn und das dreizehnte Kind von Hanna und Israel Israelien. Als es zu einer rätselhaften Seuche kommt, an der alle Jüdinnen und Juden der Welt sterben, ist Benjamin der einzige Überlebende. Er wird zunächst zu einer Kultfigur und alles Jüdische wird plötzlich en vogue ... - Der Autor erzählt mit grosser Finesse eine unterhaltsam-absurde Geschichte, um die verkitschte Mystifizierung der Shoah überzeugend anzugreifen. Die Stilelemente des Romans tänzeln verspielt zwischen Schelmenroman und Stand-up-Comedy, zwischen hoher Literatur und dem Trash jener Kultur, die der Autor so überzeugend vorführt. Der umfangreiche Band bietet auch ein ausführliches Glossar des Übersetzers, der hier wahrlich Grosses geleistet hat. Für kleine Bibliotheken wohl ein wenig zu teuer. Allen anderen Beständen mit anspruchsvollen Belletristikabteilungen aber gern empfohlen

    Abstract: Andrei S. Markovits legt mit diesem Buch die bewegte Autobiografie eines jüdischen Intellektuellen in der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts vor, geprägt von vielfältigen Orten, Sprachen und Emigrationen. Er analysiert vor allem die Strapazen der doppelten Emigration: aus Rumänien, wo er geboren wurde, nach Wien, wo er zur Schule ging, und von Wien nach New York, wo er an der Columbia University studierte. In Harvard wurde er schließlich zum Sozialwissenschaftler und zu dem Intellektuellen und Professor für Politik und andere Fächer, dessen Leben nicht nur die USA und Europa verbindet, sondern der auch in Deutschland immer wieder in Debatten eingriff und für seinen treffend analysierenden Blick geschätzt wird. Sein Verhältnis zu Deutschland ist – ausgehend von Fragen jüdischer Identität nach der Shoah – immer eine komplexe emotionale Beziehung geblieben. Für Markovits wurde es gerade die Wurzellosigkeit, die ihm sowohl Beistand als auch Inspiration für sein Lebenswerk spendet hat. Er nimmt uns mit auf eine faszinierende Reise durch die Höhen und Tiefen Europas und Amerikas nach 1945, auf der wir seiner Auseinandersetzung mit den wichtigsten politischen, gesellschaftlichen und kulturellen Entwicklungen von fünf Jahrzehnten auf zwei Kontinenten begegnen.

    Abstract: "Examining connections between Jewish American authors and Jewish authors elsewhere in America, Europe, and Israel, this book explores a concept of authorial affiliation that emphasizes how writers intentionally highlight their connections with other writers. Starting with Philip Roth as a catalyst, David Hadar reveals a larger network of authors involved in formations of Jewish American literary identity, including among others Cynthia Ozick, Saul Bellow, Nicole Krauss, and Nathan Englander. Whether it's incorporating other writers into fictional work as characters, interviewing them, publishing critical essays about them, or invoking them in paratext or publicity, writers use a variety of methods to forge public personas, craft their own identities as artists, and infuse their art with meaningful cultural associations. Hadar's analysis deepens our understanding of Jewish American and Israeli literature, positioning them in de-centered relation with one another as well as with European writing. The result is a thought-provoking challenge of the concept of homeland, recasting each of these literatures as diasporic and questioning the assumption that Jewish languages necessarily claim centrality in Jewish literatures"--

    Abstract: "The renowned biographer's definitive portrait of a literary titan. Appointed by Philip Roth and granted independence and complete access, Blake Bailey spent years poring over Roth's personal archive, interviewing his friends, lovers, and colleagues, and engaging Roth himself in breathtakingly candid conversations. The result is an indelible portrait of an American master and of the postwar literary scene. Bailey shows how Roth emerged from a lower-middle-class Jewish milieu to achieve the heights of literary fame, how his career was nearly derailed by his catastrophic first marriage, and how he championed the work of dissident novelists behind the Iron Curtain. Bailey examines Roth's rivalrous friendships with Saul Bellow, John Updike, and William Styron, and reveals the truths of his florid love life, culminating in his almost-twenty-year relationship with actress Claire Bloom, who pilloried Roth in her 1996 memoir, Leaving a Doll's House. Tracing Roth's path from realism to farce to metafiction to the tragic masterpieces of the American Trilogy, Bailey explores Roth's engagement with nearly every aspect of postwar American culture"--

    Abstract: Das Drehbuch zu „Being John Malkovich“ hat Charlie Kaufman weltberühmt gemacht. Der erste Roman des Oscar-Preisträgers ist ein neuer Meilenstein der amerikanischen Literatur: B. Rosenberg kriegt nichts auf die Reihe, außer Kritiken zu schreiben, die keiner liest. Der New Yorker Stadtneurotiker prahlt mit der schwarzen Hautfarbe seiner Freundin und wehrt sich gegen die Unterstellung, er sei Jude. Nicht einmal ein Geschlecht will er haben und nennt sich einfach nur B. Dann jedoch stößt er auf den längsten jemals gedrehten Film und hat eine Mission: Er möchte den ungesehenen Film der Welt zeigen. Doch das Meisterwerk geht in Flammen auf, und B. kann es nur nachträumen. Ein unendlicher Spaß, der jeden Rahmen sprengt.

    Abstract: Wild Visionary reconsiders Maurice Sendak's life and work in the context of his experience as a Jewish gay man. Maurice (Moishe) Bernard Sendak (1928–2012) was a fierce, romantic, and shockingly funny truth seeker who intervened in modern literature and culture. Raising the stakes of children's books, Sendak painted childhood with the dark realism and wild imagination of his own sensitive "inner child," drawing on the queer and Yiddish sensibilities that shaped his singular voice. Interweaving literary biography and cultural history, Golan Y. Moskowitz follows Sendak from his parents' Brooklyn home to spaces of creative growth and artistic vision—from neighborhood movie palaces to Hell's Kitchen, Greenwich Village, Fire Island, and the Connecticut country home he shared with Eugene Glynn, his partner of more than fifty years. Further, he analyzes Sendak's investment in the figure of the endangered child in symbolic relation to collective touchstones that impacted the artist's perspective—the Great Depression, the Holocaust, and the AIDS crisis. Through a deep exploration of Sendak's picture books, interviews, and previously unstudied personal correspondence, Wild Visionary offers a sensitive portrait of the most beloved and enchanting picture-book artist of our time

    Abstract: In a polemic against the unexamined foundations and stagnant state of the field, Benjamin Schreier critically analyzes a series of professionally powerful clichés about Jewish American literary history and how they came into being on the way to contesting the foundational ethnological presuppositions of Jewish Studies.
