Michael Chabon — author of The Yiddish Policemen’s Union and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay — received an advance copy of my forthcoming book. He writes,
Until I read The Unmaking of Israel, I didn’t think it could be possible to feel more despairing, and then more terribly hopeful, about Israel, a place that I began at last, under the spell of Gershom Gorenberg’s lucid and dispassionate yet intensely personal writing, to understand.
Well, yes, that does make me blush a bit, but I hope you’ll feel the same about the book. Advance copies, alas, are hard to come by, but you can pre-order now via Amazon, Barnes and Nobles or independent bookstores and insure that you’ll get The Unmaking of Israel as soon as it is published in November.
