  1. They all look interesting … was looking for a common thread, but couldn,t find one. Are these all books from a particular publisher’s catalogue, or somethjing? (If so which publisher.)

  2. These books do all look interesting. Looking at the book titled The Price of Whiteness, I was reminded of an older book called How Jews Became White Folks and What That Says About Race in America. Sorry, I don’t remember the author.
    I don’t agree with everything he says, but Michael Lerner’s new book The Left Hand of G-d is coming out in early February.

  3. hey, no common thread of theme, just new works of scholarship, translation and fiction I think ya’ll should know about.

  4. I forgot to mention that the 3rd volume of Daniel C. Matt’s tranlation of the Zohar, Stanford University Press, will be out this month.

  5. Even this old, darkwater gentile knows that enough can not be written about the Nazi inferno that scorched the earth in human ash. If Spielberg ever sees my book about Ameia Earhart in some store (Amelia’s Voice) he’ll find a short story relating to Auschwitz inside; a time travel book is what my novel is–and it throws the protagonist into a mistaken journey–it’s horrific!
