  4. The Jewish American Short Story:
    DATES: January 22, 29, February 5, 12, 2018 (Monday)
    TIME: 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.  LOCATION: Vero Beach, Mueller Campus, Richardson Center, (C-103)

    Not so long ago, Jewish American writers (Saul Bellow, Bernard Malamud, Philip Roth) were prominent in short story and novel writing. Bellow won a Nobel Prize, Roth a coveted reissue of all his fiction, and Malamud was acknowledged by his peers as the master they followed. This class will consider one or more stories of each of these writers and compare them to stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway to see if we can tease out what it meant to be a “Jewish” American writer.
