This collection of twelve essays on Jewish women writers and British culture breaks new ground in the fields of both women's studies and Jewish studies. For the first time a variety of British women writers from across the twentieth century are brought together and considered through the lens of their Jewish background. The surprising result is to reveal unsuspected connections between authors as diverse as the cross-dressing actress Naomi Jacob and the former professor of Art History at the Courtauld, Anita Brookner, between the Anglo-American poets Denise Levertov and Mina Loy, the Welsh Zionist novelist, Lily Tobias, and the Israeli children's writer, Lynne Reid Banks; between the translator, Elaine Feinstein, the cellist, Anita Lasker-Wallfisch, and the dramatist, Diane Samuels.
