Contemporary Jewish Writing in Britain and Ireland: An Anthology
edited by Bryan Cheyette


The multiple voice of contemporary British- and Irish-Jewish fiction is given full expression in this unique anthology. It explores the hitherto unfamiliar Jewishness of certain established writers such as Anita Brookner, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala and Harold Pinter as well as a formidable array of native Jewish writers, émigrés and exiles, feminist and post-modern voices, all of whom have brought great imagination and understanding to the Jewish experience in Britain and Ireland.

Included are also Elaine Feinstain, Eva Figes, Ruth Fainlight, Dan Jacobson, Gabriel Josipovici, Emanuel Litvinoff, Simon Louvish, Bernice Rubens, Clive Sinclair, George Steiner and Micheline Wandor as well as newer voices such as Elena Lappin, Ronit Lentin, Jonathan Treitel and Jonathan Wilson.
