Reviews
"[Contemporary Jewish Writing in Brazil] is an all-around worthy introduction to a body of writing that may be new to many members of the Anglophone reading public."--Naomi Lindstrom, Shofar
"This anthology . . . belongs in every research library in America."--Clifford E. Landers, Review 83
"This anthology is an excellent resource for anyone interested in literature, not only for academics. . . . It incorporates a variety of texts and authors, some that have immigrated to Brazil and some that were already born there, from different generations, with different views of what it means to be Jewish."--Paula Rodriquez Pontes, South Atlantic Review
