Books on Israelis and Palestinians for young and old alike, Némirovsky’s world, and more
After the brouhaha over The Shepherd’s Granddaughter, Tablet parenting columnist Marjorie Ingall compiles a list of recommended books about the Israeli Palestinian conflict for young adults. A new one for adults, Almost Dead, was written by Assaf Gavron with “humor and empathy”; our podcast Vox Tablet features host Sara Ivry’s interview with the novelist and translator. Books columnist Joshua Lambert checks out volumes on Irène Némirovsky and the Paris she inhabited, the latest from Robert Alter, and more. Plus, much more to come, here on The Scroll.
Plus Blair stranded, books in Italy, and more in the news
