Good, interesting, rather academic review of The J-Word in this week's Ham & High (Hampstead & Highgate Express).
Here's a link to a PDF of two pages in the Ham & High - the review spans the two pages: http://tinyurl.com/jword-1
The reviewer, Emma Klein (author of Lost Jews), analyses the story, the characters and the development of the plot in The J-Word in a way I'd never be able to do myself!
She says some very nice things, too:
"A fascinating exposure of the vagaries of Jewish identity and its impact on individual lives. ... A considerable achievement."
