what i’ve been writing lately


Here is a review of a parenting book that made me want to throw things. Here is a farewell to Phineas and Ferb, the smartest kids’ show on TV. Here’s a look at the fascinating history of a Greek-Jewish community in NYC. And here is a New York Times book review of Jami Attenberg’s wonderful new novel Saint Mazie.

I’m also working on my book (about the history of the Jewish Mother stereotype and why it’s wrong) and other projects, and sitting next to my beautiful cat, who is dying. Which, along with yet another insane shooting of innocent people and Tablet’s huge piece today about ISIS’s murder of journalist Steven Sotloff, puts a lot of things in perspective.
