Ozick Responds

By | Tagged: culture

In this week’s Jewish Week, Cynthia Ozick responds to the newspaper’s two scathing critiques (one by Gary Rosenblatt, the other by Jerome Chanes) of Tova Reich’s novel, My Holocaust.

(For previous blog entries on this topic, see: I, II, III.)

While I agreed with the JW‘s overall view, Ozick is right to criticize Chanes for his poor fact-checking and extra-literary analysis. A novel should, indeed, be judged on its literary merits.
