The Jewish Writer
The Jewish Writer
Known for the intimacy, whimsy, and magic of her portraits, photojournalist Jill Krementz presents an inquiry into the soul of the Jewish writer. Jewish writing has played an indispensable role in the witnessing, chronicling, and shaping of this century. For the past four decades, Jill Krementz has amassed a peerless photographic archive of literary figures who, in the telling of their own stories, have helped chart the history of their times. This vibrant new collection includes such venerable Jewish voices as Isaac Bashevis Singer, Herman Wouk, and Hannah Arendt; important contemporaries such as David Mamet and Cynthia Ozick; and exciting new writers such as Allegra Goodman, Aryeh Lev Stollman, and Tony Kushner, who are only just beginning to tell their tales. In the style of her much beloved book, The Writer's Desk, each portrait is accompanied by insightful text, forming a vivid, immediate fusion of word and image. The interaction of these generations of writers has produced a fascinating spectrum. In her unique volume, Jill Krementz assembles these images, each the luminous piece of a mosaic, to form the composite portrait of the Jewish writer today.
