If you were being shot at, and your only means of defense was a work of 2010 fiction, which should it be? Because nobody should be put in that situation–and because 2010 was such a big year for big books–the good folks at Electric Literature decided to investigate. And we’re very proud that more than a few of the entrants were friends or guest-bloggers at MyJewishLearning, including [spoiler alert!] the eventual winner.
First watch the film. Then check out our features on Joshua Cohen’s Witz, Adam Levin, and Jonathan Franzen’s big Jewish slip-up.
(Bonus points to the EL folks for pronouncing Witz correctly! Not that we ever doubted you.)
