  1. It is always nice to see references to Jessica Cohen’s excellent translations. She is an unusually skillful literary translator, and in the just-over-a-decade that I’ve followed her work, I’ve come to appreciate her light way with words and her ability to express the full spectrum of the Hebrew source material.

    Such back-scenes skill deserves public mention, so here it is: Jessica Cohen is the Hebrew to English literary translator who brought Grossman’s writing into reach of the broader English-reading audience.

    Translators matter. 🙂

  2. I am a bit confused. You have stated in the past that you are a zionist. You also state that you have a quarrel with liberal zionism. You are a fan of Jacqueline Rose, a staunch anti-zionist. So exactly where do you stand?

      Well, at least you’re honest.

      I just love you literalists. Because I enjoy a review an anti Zionist wrote about a novel by a liberal Zionist that makes me…what? An anti-Zionist? Have you written to Rose to ask her how an anti ZIonist can favorably review a novel written by a liberal Zionist? Perhaps are you imprisoned in your ideological blindness?
