People Of The Book: A Decade Of Jewish Science Fiction & Fantasy

Prime Books | June 22, 2012 | Trade Paperback |

Not yet rated | write a review
From Sholom Aleichem to Avram Davidson, Isaac Bashevis Singer to Tony Kushner, the Jewish literary tradition has always been one rich in the supernatural and the fantastic. In these pages, gathered from the best short fiction of the last ten years, twenty authors prove that their heritage is alive and well - in the spaces between stars that an alphabet can bridge, folklore come to life and histories become stories, and all the places where old worlds and new collide and change.

About the Author

An American novelist and short-story writer, Michael Chabon was born in Washington, D.C., in 1963. The son of a pediatrician and a lawyer, Chabon grew up in Columbia, Maryland, and spent his summers with his father in Pittsburgh. Chabon received his B.A. from the University of Pittsburgh in 1985, and went on to get his Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of California at Irvine. Chabon found success at the age of twenty-four, when William Morrow publishing house offered him $155,000, a near-record sum, for the rights to his first novel The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, which was Chabon's thesis in graduate school. After Pittsburgh became a national best-seller, Chabon began writing a series of short stories about a little boy dealing with his parents' divorce. The stories, which in part appeared in The New Yorker and G.Q., were bound together in 1991 into a volume titled A Model World And Other Stories. Chabon has also written articles for The New York Times and Vogue. In 2001 he won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for his novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. Chabon lives in Los Angeles. Neil Gaiman was born in Portchester, England on November 10, 1960. He worked as a journalist and freelance writer for a time, before deciding to try his hand at comic books. Some of his work has appeared in publications such as Time Out, The Sunday Times, Punch and The Observer. His first comic endeavor was the graphic novel series The Sandman. It is the comic book he is most
