Modern Jewish Canon Summary

Modern Jewish Canon: A Journey Through Language and Culture by Ruth R. Wisse

What makes a great Jewish book? In fact, what makes a book "Jewish" in the first place? Ruth R. Wisse eloquently fields these questions in "The Modern Jewish Canon", her compassionate, insightful guide to the finest Jewish literature of the 20th century. From Isaac Babel to Isaac Bashevis Singer, Elie Wiesel to Cynthia Ozick, Wisse's "The Modern Jewish Canon" is a book that every student of Jewish literature, and every reader of great fiction, should enjoy.
