Reading Israel, Reading America: The Politics of Translation between Jews

ד"ר עמרי אשר
Stanford University Press

Reading Israel, Reading America explores the politics of translation as it shapes the understandings and misunderstandings of Israeli literature in the United States and American Jewish literature in Israel. Engaging in close readings of translations of iconic novels by the likes of Philip Roth, Saul Bellow, Bernard Malamud, Amos Oz, A. B. Yehoshua, and Yoram Kaniuk—in particular, the ideologically motivated omissions and additions in the translations, and the works' reception by reviewers and public intellectuals—the book decodes the literary encounter and ongoing cultural dialogue between Israeli and American Jews.
