Contents Introduction : translating across the homeland-diaspora divide -- The Zionist transformation -- Ethical conundrums -- Israeli Jewishness for American eyes -- Jewish American literature makes aliyah -- "Judaism in translation" -- Conclusion : entangled self-perceptions.
Summary Engaging in close readings of translations of iconic novels by the likes of Philip Roth, Saul Bellow, Bernard Malamud, Amos Oz, A. B. Yehoshua, and Yoram Kaniuk--in particular, the ideologically motivated omissions and additions in the translations, and the works' reception by reviewers and public intellectuals--Asscher decodes the literary encounter between Israeli and American Jews. These discrepancies demarcate an ongoing cultural dialogue around representations of violence, ethics, Zionism, diaspora, and the boundaries between Jews and non-Jews.-- Back cover.
