Jewish Noir is a unique collection of new stories by Jewish and non-Jewish literary and genre writers. The collection has more than 30 contributors, from Marge Piercy and S.J. Rozan to the Yiddish writer Yente Serdatsky, whose story “A Simkhe” is appearing in English for the first time. The tales herein explore such issues as the Holocaust and its long-term effects, anti-Semitism in the mid- and late-twentieth-century United States, and the dark side of the Diaspora (the decline of revolutionary fervor, the passing of generations, the Golden Ghetto, etc.).
