An Isaac Babel Celebration
Listen to/Watch entire show:
The Complete Works of Isaac Babel (Norton)
We inaugurate Bookworm's Book Club with a celebration of the Russian master, Isaac Babel. We'll focus on the paradox of his disturbing laconic style: the lyric joy of a Jew describing Cossack violence. Talking about Babel will be his daughter, Nathalie Babel, his translator, Peter Constantine and Cynthia Ozick, a Jewish-American writer influenced by Babel.
Read an excerpt of The Complete Works of Isaac Babel.
- Cynthia Ozick: author, 'Heir to the Glimmering World'
