Two from Leonard Lopate at WNYC

Today, there was a piece on Gregor Von Rezzori's Memoirs of an Anti-Semite.
Deborah Eisenberg, who wrote the introduction to the New York Review of Books edition of the novel, joins us to explain why this book should be on your summer reading list.

Also, I'd been meaning to post this one from last week:
Sadia Shepard was raised a Muslim, so she was surprised to learn that her grandmother had actually been born Jewish as a member of India’s small Bene Israel community of Jews. In her new book, The Girl from Foreign, she writes about her journey to India to learn more about her grandmother’s life, the history of the Bene Israel, and her own intertwined cultural heritage.
