Reviews
American Hebrew Literature breathes new life into long-forgotten works and serves as a groundbreaking introduction to a literature that few until now have properly appreciated.-- "Jonathan D. Sarna, Brandeis University"
Michael Weingrad's fascinating history of the flourishing of Hebrew literature in America . . . is most timely and needed. With great learning and lucidity and passion, Weingrad brings to life this 'counterhistory' of émigré authors who refused the typical path of Jewish assimilation to the United States.-- "Ross Posnock, Columbia University"
