I am an Italian Jew, so I wrote a book about absurdity of this combination, entitled Matzoh and Meatballs.  Let's face it:  Italian and Jew make a ridiculously paradoxical blend.

This semi-fictional novel/semi-memoir is about a family leaving Long Island and moving to the waspiest of American communities.  It is written for my two children who, once they are old enough to read and understand this, will hopefully glean insight into their heritage.  During April 2012, you will be able to read an excerpt, entitled "Judas," at Intellectual Refuge and hear an AUDIO excerpt, entitled "Pedigree," at WordPlaySound
