MEDIA REVIEWS

"'Holocaust piety' is the urge to be silenced by the genocide, to mystify it. In contrast, Boswell, one of a new generation of Holocaust scholars, writes about how the Holocaust has been used (and possibly misused) in culture from avant-garde poetry to the Ramones and Joy Division to Quentin Tarantino. These insightful 'impieties' tell us about the Holocaust and ourselves." -Robert Eaglestone, Professor of Contemporary Literature and Thought, Royal Holloway, Times Higher Education

'This book is highly recommended for those interested in the most recent developments in the discussion about Holocaust representability. The thesis of Holocaust impiety proposed by Boswell brings an important contribution to the field of Holocaust memory and representation, and situates this author within a new generation of scholars who are unafraid to pose challenging and worthwhile questions.' - Diana Popescu, University of Southampton, Journal of History and Cultures
