They’re Young, and They Don’t Make It Up
And several of them write for us
Excuse the auto-horn-tooting: In response to the New Yorker’s ’20 Under 40’ fiction writers list the New Haven Review has noted 20 nonfiction writers under 40 (well, mostly) who are worth watching—and several have Tablet Magazine connections!
• Contributing editor Joshua Cohen, author of the novel Witz, writes a column on translated works; see ‘em all here.
• Keith Gessen was a Vox Tablet guest (and is an FOTM to boot).
• Contributing editor Gideon Lewis-Kraus has penned several essays, including a profile of Wilhelm Reich titled, “Master of the Orgasm.”
• Contributing editor Mark Oppenheimer is also an editor at the New Haven Review. He has written extensively on Holocaust revisionism for us.
• If forced, to pick my favorite piece by contributing editor David Samuels, it would be this.
• Samantha M. Shapiro profiled Miriam Lowenbraun, of the Association for Jewish Outreach Professionals.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
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.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at email@example.com. 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.
