Liked your review of STONER, which is also one of my all-time favorite novels. I see you read of "Jews and Judaism." I recommend Stella Suberman's lovely memoir, THE JEW STORE. I've read all three of Stella's books and loved them all. I'm also a fan of Malamud and greatly enjoyed his daughter's memoir, MY FATHER IS A BOOK.

I envy you your NYC location. I live literary siberia and am so grateful for Amazon. Keep on reading. Writers need us.
