Elegant and learned, personal and universal, literary, philosophical, historical—Hillel Halkin’s finely wrought essays on themes of Jewish culture are an education in themselves.

Hillel Halkin is widely admired as a translator, biographer, and critic. Deeply versed in Jewish literary and historical sources, his complex sensibility illuminates everything it touches. In A Complicated Jew, Halkin assembles a selection of personal essays that form, if not a conventional memoir, a haunting and intimate record of a profoundly Jewish literary life. It is a banquet for the mind.
