About the Author
Praise For The Wicked Son: Anti-Semitism, Self-Hatred, and the Jews…
"A bold and blistering attack on all aspects of this enduring phenomenon, and a probing analysis of its root causes and some of its more insidious manifestations."
“Like everything Mamet does, [The Wicked Son] is blunt and bracing, honest and provocative, original and gutsy.”
–The New York Times Book Review
“Rare among the defenders of the Jews–and of Judaism– Mamet recognizes the romance in the story of his ancient religion and race, and finds the words beautiful enough to describe it.”
–The International Jerusalem Post
“[Mamet’s] clarity, insight, and passion . . . can be both devastatingly witty and scathingly angry.”
–The New York Post
–The Jewish Observer
