Throughout her masterful essays, prizewinning novelist Dara Horn challenges us to confront the reasons why there might be so much fascination with Jewish deaths, and so little respect for Jewish lives unfolding in the present.
“People Love Dead Jews is, of all things, a deeply entertaining book, from its whopper of a title on… Horn is a masterful essayist… She has the instincts of a stand-up comic with something deadly serious on her mind.” — Tablet Magazine
DARA HORN is the award-winning author of six books, including the novels In the Image, A Guide for the Perplexed and Eternal Life. She is the recipient of two National Jewish Book Awards, her books have been selected as New York Times Notable Books and have been translated into eleven languages.
DAVID BADDIEL is a writer and comedian. He lives in London. He is also, would you believe, a Jew.
In this provocative new work, British author David Baddiel examines the –ism that woke culture and identity politics leave behind: Antisemitism. In his unique combination of close reasoning, polemic and jokes, Baddiel argues that those who think of themselves as on the right side of history have often ignored the history of Antisemitism. He outlines why and how, in a time of intensely heightened awareness of minorities, Jews don’t count as a real minority: and why they should.
