A wonderful piece from Tablet, prompted by Judith Shulevitz’s new book The Sabbath World: Glimpses of a Different Order of Time, which excerpts nine Jewish fiction writers on how they’ve handled the theme of the seventh day within their works. Excerpted authors included Elisa Albert, Shalom Auslander, David Bezmozgis, Nathan Englander, Tova Mirvis, Lev Raphael, Jonathan Rosen, and, of course, Philip Roth. Find the excerpts here.
