Summary
"Jewish Noir is a unique collection of new stories by Jewish and non-Jewish literary and genre writers, including numerous award-winning authors. The collection has more than 30 contributors, from Marge Piercy and S.J. Rozan to the Yiddish writer Yente Serdatsky, whose story 'A Simkhe, ' published in the Forverts in 1912, is appearing in English for the first time. The tales herein explore such issues as the Holocaust and its long-term effects on subsequent generations, anti-Semitism in the mid- and late-twentieth-century United States, and the dark side of the Diaspora (the decline of revolutionary fervor, the passing of generations, the Golden Ghetto, etc.). Jewish Noir's stories also include many 'teachable moments' and conversation starters about the history of prejudice and the contradictions of ethnic identity and assimilation into American society."--
