New & Interesting Reads in the Rosen

(Researched and written by Victor Olefson)

The Golem of Brooklyn
By Adam Mansbach

A somewhat goofy, but delightful read on the Golem, this time brought to life to protect persecuted Jews by a secular art teacher and an ex-ultra-orthodox lesbian. A fast-paced humorous tale, it deals with serious and timely issues of when it is right, or even demanded, to seek out and kill anti-Semites.

Adam Mansbach is a rather edgy writer, whose other titles include 'Angry Black White Boy', and 'The End of the Jews'

 

Norwegian by Night
By Derek B. Miller

Unusual novel of Jewish interest. An elderly man's tormented struggle with the past, with a richly drawn backdrop of Norway that is a character in itself. The novel is written from the point of view of an aging Korean War veteran, who might be suffering from dementia, lost his son in Vietnam, and involves a Kosovar criminal gang in present-day Norway. Reminiscent of 'The Pawnbroker', this is a cinematically-told tale. 

Derek Miller is an academic in International Relations at the Pell Center, who has written a number of highly praised novels, including 'The Girl in Green', and 'American by Day'
