Amy’s lit picks

The History of Love, By Nicole Krauss

“Two stories, of past and present, are merged together in a brilliant novel with surprising twists and turns, chronicling the survival of the human spirit against all odds. Writing with tenderness and humor about eccentric characters, Krauss’ imagination brings us into a world of love and loss.”

As a Driven Leaf by Rabbi Milton Steinberg

“The magnificent work of modern fiction that brings the age of the Talmud to life, and explores the times of Elisha ben Abuyah, whose struggle to live in two worlds destroyed his chances to live in either.”

The Secret Book of Grazia dei Rossi by Jacqueline Park

“A historical novel with a Renaissance Jewish heroine as captivating as Scarlett O’Hara.”

Fabulous Small Jews by Joseph Epstein

This marvelous book of short stories draws the reader into the lives of various men who are all at various crossroads in their lives. These are Jewish stories with universal themes: the complexities of family love, the alienation of talent, the attempt to shake one’s identity, the desperation of strangled impulses. But the magic, charm, and humor are in Epstein’s lavish details, observant eye and witty voice.

The Chosen by Chaim Potok

The tale of two boys, their fathers, their friendship, and the chaotic times in which they live. At its core is the struggle for faith–the intellectually committed as well as the passionately observant.
