What if your first love was not one person but an entire culture? This is a loud and heartfelt celebration of one woman's relationship with the Jewish people. Growing up as a blonde, popular, West Country schoolgirl, Julie Burchill was the unlikeliest convert to militant Zionism but learning of the cruelty the Jewish people faced throughout history turned her into their biggest champion. From her marriage to a 'not Jewish enough husband' to drunken holidays in Israel, arguments with lesbian rabbis to being banned from her local synagogue, this is a brilliantly funny and unflinchingly honest account of a philo-Semite that will shock and delight in equal parts. Join Julie as she examines her 40-year obsession with the Jewish people and recounts a love affair that is as hedonistic, passionate and outspoken as its author. This is a frivolous book about a serious subject that is now more important than ever. It's An Education, but with more sex, more violence and a lot more Jews.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Julie Burchill has the most chronic case of Jew Madness on record. Incurable, irrational and very funny. I love this book" -- Tanya Gold
"A joy to behold. Burchill knows no fear. I would man the barricades with her any day...any Jew who feels anxious in these days of palpable anti-semitism ought to read this book. It's funny, and we all need a laugh. But more importantly, it's a timely reminder that no, my friends, you do not walk alone" -- Monica Porter * Jewish Chronicle *
"I'm afraid I can't really dignify her latest offering with the ascription "book"..." -- Will Self * Guardian *
"Riotous ... currently my on-tour bedside companion" -- Bryan Ferry * Daily Mail *
"An occasionally touching, sometimes bigoted and sporadically hilarious love letter" -- Keith Kahn-Harris * Independent *
