Brief review: The Rabbi of Lud by Stanley Elkin

Posted on April 17, 2019


I’m taking a break from reading and reviewing new books to catch up with

some old ones on my TBR list. I’m also trying to improve my Hebrew

and am currently reading and enjoying the Hebrew edition of Ya’akov

Shabtai’s unfinished last novel סוף דבר (published in English as Past Perfect).

In circumstances when I cannot read with my eyes I read with my ears.

I just finished listening to the audiobook of The Rabbi of Lud by

Stanley Elkin, a writer of whom I became aware while reading his

friend William H. Gass while preparing to review

The William H. Gass Reader. My brief review 

of The Rabbi of Lud appears on Goodreads.
