Reviews
"Ultimately, Meyers offers not only nuanced readings of many texts, but also a cogent argument about the generative possibilities for American Jewish futurity through an undoing of what constitutes normative understandings of Jewish bodies, families, and relationships." -- Journal of Jewish Identities

"Identity Papers is an important, thoughtful text that will appeal to those with an interest in postmodern inquiries into multiculturalism, identity theory, and selfhood." -- MELUS

"This is a sophisticated, nuanced critical study of contemporary Jewish (American) literature ... Taking an anthropological approach to Jewish and Judaic cultural expression, Meyers provides probing, subtle analyses ... Highly recommended." --CHOICE
