Underappreciated: Gregor von Rezzori's Memoirs of an Anti-Semite
Monday, August 11, 2008
In Gregor von Rezzori's semi-autobiographical satire, Memoirs of an Anti-Semite, the narrator looks back on a lifetime of fascination with and hatred of Jews. Elie Wiesel has said that Rezzori's voice "echoes with the disturbing and wonderful magic of a true storyteller." 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.
