Kirsch, Heidegger, and Némirovsky, Oh My!

Forthcoming ‘Book Review’ has items of interest

Print Email

If the just-released podcast is any indication, this Sunday’s New York Times Book Review will have plenty of content near and dear to our hearts. It features Tablet Magazine books critic Adam Kirsch discussing his forthcoming review on the philosopher (and Nazi) Martin Heidegger, and novelist Francine Prose talking about Irène Némirovsky.

Kirsch reviewed the correspondence between Heidegger and Hannah Arendt (his lover!) in 2004 for, Tablet Magazine’s precursor.

Paul La Farge reviewed an earlier Irène Némirovsky biography for in 2006.

And Francine Prose discussed Anne Frank on a Vox Tablet podcast last year.

This NYT podcast is really good by the way. Not, you know, National Magazine Award-winning good, but good.

Why the “OH MY?”

Can’t stand taking real events seriously. Got to make a joke out of everything.

You are a spoiled bunch of brats.
