Concentration camp romance


A man gets shipped to Auschwitz with both his wife and his girlfriend. This is not the opening of a joke or an offensive romantic comedy. It's the premise of a new documentary. Enjoy the trailer above.

This Christmas, enjoy some kosher ham

Leave it to the fine folks at the Jones Soda Company who, in years past, has brought us such holiday flavors as Turkey Gravy and Sweet Potato (they even have an Antacid flavor). This year comes word that they will be releasing a ham flavored soda and, as always, it will be kosher (and caffeine free). This year will also feature a special Chanukah pack including Latke Soda, Apple Sauce Soda, Chocolate Coins Soda and Jelly Doughnut Soda.

Norman Mailer, baruch dayan haemet

Novelist and provocateur Norman Mailer, originally known to his family as Nachem Malek, died on Shabbat at the age of 84. There's lots of obits and eulogies circulating the web, but The New York Times' coverage -- not surprisingly -- seems to be the most definitive. Here's a taste of their article:
Mr. Mailer belonged to the old literary school that regarded novel writing as a heroic enterprise undertaken by heroic characters with egos to match. He was the most transparently ambitious writer of his era, seeing himself in competition not just with his contemporaries but with the likes of Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky.

He was also the least shy and risk-averse of writers. He eagerly sought public attention, and publicity inevitably followed him on the few occasions when he tried to avoid it. His big ears, barrel chest, striking blue eyes and helmet of seemingly electrified hair jet black at first and ultimately snow white made him instantly recognizable, a celebrity long before most authors were lured out into the limelight.

This guy was pretty prolific, publishing more than 30 books, including one that was just released a month ago. The Times' Mailer coverage continues with "An Appraisal" by Times book critic Michiko Kakutani and a Mailer Sampler. As for us, we had the honor of interviewing Mailer for our Mar/Apr 2007 issue a few months back which you can read here. He will most certainly be missed.

Question to our readers: With Mailer's passing, who would you consider to be the greatest living Jewish novelist? Post your comments below.
