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.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

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.
