What is Jewish Fiction?
I would like to thank Erika Dreifus for sharing this video. It sounds like to me that there is a fine line. Still no one has the answer. Like always there could be 5 Jews and everyone has a different opinion. It will never be answered. Which is fine by me. To me I think it is your own experience, and your own interpetation.
For me Jewish fiction has to be:
1) The author must be JEWISH.
there are some authors that say their book is Jewish when they never experience being Jewish. Going one time to a passover seder doesn't cut it.
2) The Jewish experience and ideas
Just because a person writes in a few Jewish names doesn't make a book Jewish.
