Serious Play: A Dialogue on Jewish Writing

By Rebecca Goldstein, Yael Goldstein

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2003

Rebecca and Yael Goldstein, mother and daughter, discuss what makes them Jewish writers and to what extent they have these traits in common with non-Jewish writers. They conclude that in addition to being Jewish and being writers, they fell in love with Jewish stories at an early age, they exhibit a certain playfulness with ideas reminiscent of the midrashic tradition, and with an "unrepentant earthiness", they are reluctant to shy away from manĂ¢??s not altogether dignified nature.
