I greatly enjoyed this collection of photographs of Jewish writers. I am by no means an expert on the subject but Jill Krementz seems to me to have the ability to catch something of the essential quality of each writer. She usually does this with great sympathy and often with humor. I enjoyed this book a lot, and it made me realize I have not thought seriously enough about the question of how the 'picturing of the writer' in our mind effects our reading.
