The essays in this book focus on a wide and representative variety of Jewish American women writers, including Cynthia Ozick, Anne Roiphe, Erica Jong, Pauline Kael, Allegra Goodman, Norma Rosen, Adrienne Rich, Lynn Sharon Schwartz, and others. In every instance the contributors have tried to deal not only with the Jewish content of their work but also with its literary quality and other major themes.
Jay L. Halio, Emeritus Professor of English, University of Delaware is the author of more than thirty books, including a study of Philip Roth.
Ben Siegel was Professor of English at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
