The November-December issue Moment magazine ("The Book Issue") arrived last week, and it contains some terrific content. Here's a quick guide to some highlights:
1) A profile of comedian Jon Stewart (born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz)
2) Reading recommendations (classic and contemporary Jewish books) from nine Nobel laureates. Plus: more suggestions from rabbis.
3) The top three stories submitted to the most recent Moment-Karma Short Fiction Award competition.
4) A poem by Myra Sklarew
5) And an online bonus: a book club guide to Philip Roth's Goodbye Columbus and Other Stories.
