I think this might be a record: two JBC Bookshelf posts within two weeks. Not all of these books will be published in the fall (it’s ok August, we’re letting you slip in), but they’re all worth checking out over the next several months. The titles below reflect on various topics across Jewish life, culture, and history and celebrate Judaism in America, past, present, and what’s to come…Living Jewishly: A Snapshot of a Generation, Stefanie Pervos Bergman, ed. (August 2012, Academic Studies Press)
In History’s Grip: Philip Roth’s Newark Trilogy, Michael Kimmage (August 2012, Stanford University Press)
