Publishers Weekly, 1989-07-14 Although uneven in literary quality and sometimes naive, this potpourri of short fiction, poetry, essays and interviews is a vigorous, stimulating celebration of a multifaceted Jewish womanhood. Cultures outside the mainstream American experience are illuminated via memories of childhoods in a Jewish Sephardic home in Catholic Argentina and in a segregated Russian-Jewish community in China. Novelist Sarah Schulman offers a walking tour through radical Jewish women's history on the Lower East Side, 1879-1919, and Jerusalemite Chaya Shalom discusses the discrimination she has faced as a Sephardi and as a lesbian in Israel. Savina Teubal reads Genesis as the usurpation of a matriarchate by a patriarchy; and Julie Greenberg, a lesbian rabbinical student, attempts to reconcile Jewish traditions with feminism. Preserved here are a 19th century Moroccan ballad of a young woman who chooses martyrdom rather than joining the Sultan's harem and converting to Islam, and an autobiographical story by an American college student who was hidden in a Polish orphanage during WW II. The editors are both writing instructors at Vermont College. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
