Reviews

"A story that, despite being preposterous, feels altogether real." --New York Times Book Review

"Judenstaat is a novel of vast historical imagination--also a fantasy engendered from grief, from love, and from the devastating particulars of Europe's 20th century tragedy. It's a work of great feeling."--Ken Kalfus, Faulkner Award finalist and author of A Disorder Peculiar to the Country

"Zelitch deftly weaves the personal and the political." --Jewish Daily Forward

"The glory of Simone Zelitch's page-turning alternate history is the uncanny precision with which she has deftly transformed the threads of actual events into the stunning new fabric of her novel." --Book Page

"Like Ari Shavit's recent book about the founding of Israel, My Promised Land, Zelitch's Judenstaat raises some profound questions about the cost of the Zionist enterprise." --Jewish Book Council

"Judenstaat reveals the dichotomies fracturing Jewish life--religious and secular, reactionary and reformist--in an attempt to engage with the larger question of what it means to be Jewish in a post-Holocaust world." --Shelf Awareness

"Beautifully told, thoughtful and disturbing alternate history." --BoingBoing

"A philosophically resonant tale about the shaping, and force, of collective memory." --Kirkus Reviews
