MEDIA REVIEWS

'This beautifully written collection offers a welcome overview of Jewish women writers and their heritage.' - Elaine B. Safer, Professor of English, University of Delaware

"The articles in this collection are superb and well situated with a splendid and original introduction by Avery. This is a strong contribution to the fields of Jewish Literature, Jewish American literature, women's studies and Jewish women's literature." - Dan Walden, Professor Emeritus of American Studies, English and Comp.Lit., Penn State University; Editor, Studies in American Jewish Literature

'The scholars assembled in this collection are all cogent, effective writers. It was a pleasure to read this volume since the contributors understand the direction that much of Jewish-American literature is taking namely, to a deeper understandingof Jewish history, to Jewish languages (mainly Hebrew), to tradition in general, and to Jewish observance in particular.' - Sanford Pinsker, Professor Emeritus of Humanities, Franklin and Marshall College
