A Counterfactual Jewish State After the Holocaust: Simone Zelitch's New Novel, "Judenstaat"
It's the summer doldrums and I'm taking a bit of a break from blogging about historical counterfactuals.
But I thought I'd post a link to a new review that I just published in The Forward on Simone Zelitch's novel, Judenstaat, about a Jewish state being established in Saxony after World War II.
The novel was briefly profiled in this past weekend's New York Times, along with Underground Airlines. I'd like to think I engage with the book's absorbing narrative in greater depth.
