Imprint: Little A
Publisher: Amazon Publishing
Publication date: 1 Dec 2020
ISBN: 9781542023443

In this wide-ranging series of essays, at turns irreverent, insightful, urgent and iconoclastic, Matt considers what might loosely be termed ‘the modern Jewish experience’, and asks what it means to be anything in a world obsessed with the self and the other.

"The book deftly blends the personal with the political"

Jew(ish) is full of eclectic reflections – everything from Jeremy Paxman’s treatment of Ed Miliband (and his use of the coded description “North London geek”) to the less-than-coded idiocy of David Icke, with his “Partridge-brand fever dreams” – and offers plenty of interesting food for thought.
