Some Great Interviews with Shalom Auslander

I don’t know if you already read Foreskin’s Lament by Shalom Auslander, but if you didn’t yet, go  buy / borrow / steal it. Unless you can’t handle blasphemy. (But then again, what the hell are you doing on my site, you masochist!?) I finished his book in only a few days and that’s quick for a working guy with a family.

This interview /  bookreading on Bookniks is is great fun to watch:

Less funny, but nevertheless intriguing is this interview from npr.org:

BTW: Did you know Shalom is the nephew of Rabbi Norman Lamm?

  1. I read his book several months ago, and yes it's clever and witty, but on the same token, he seems to have no qualms abouat invading other people's privacy. He didn't have to do that to get his point across.

  2. Hi IC, I do see your point but besides that it was a masterpiece. I think it probably has to do with the anger he grew up with.

    LOL, I didn't. Why does that knowledge give me such perverse pleasure?
