Jewish Fiction

What with all the great Jewish writers through the centuries, lets start a discussion of Jewish Fiction. Which books are your favorites? Which writer is your favorite...Philip Roth, Saul Bellow, Issac Beshevis Singer, Malamud,Heller, Mailer, Kafka, Canetti...the list is endless.

Feel free to add the names and the titles as you talk Jewish Fiction.

A self-led discussion free of an official narrator as one might find at such good websites like Nextbook.

Start a discussion. L'chaim.
