Today on Tablet

A Bellow twofer, Soviet Jews, and more

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, contributing editor Jonathan Wilson provides a double-whammy on the occasion of the publication of Saul Bellow’s letters: He reviews them, wallowing in “a gone world when literature was all the rage;” and he interviews Janis Bellow, the novelist’s widow, who confirms that Bellow wrote not for posterity but for the moment. Adam Kirsch praises Gal Beckerman’s history of the movement to rescue Soviet Jewry. The Scroll would remind its readers that Bellow is in one way the patron saint of Tablet Magazine and its predecessor, Nextbook.org: He once said, “We are always looking for the book it is necessary to read next.”

COMMENTING CHARGES
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18
Yearly rate: $180

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 letters@tabletmag.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.
