Editorial Reviews

Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter
This book is highly recommended for scholarly collections, and will also find an audience in public, community, and synagogue libraries serving GLBT patrons.
Jeffrey Shandler
His probing readings not only bring fresh insights to these works, but also invite readers to rethink how gender and sexuality are engaged, even as they are disguised or obscured, in modern Jewish culture generally. (Jeffrey Shandler, author of Adventures in Yiddishland)
Lilith Magazine
A great read for anyone examining Jewish work on page, stage or screen in America - or anyone who ever wondered, deep down, if there wasn't something just a bit . . . queer about Jewish culture in America.
Philadelphia Gay News
While Jewish-American culture of the late 20th century often rejected (or merely ignored) LGBT culture, according to Warren Hoffman the first half of the century was more forgiving. In his new book . . . [Hoffman] explores queer Jewish identity in 20th-century American literature, drama and film.
The Gay & Lesbian Review
Hoffman has written a wonderful book that asks important questions about assimilation, identity, gender, and the queering of the Jewish American experience. He digs deeply into the texts and comes up with hidden truths that are finally brought into the light.
