Josh Lambert joins us to discuss his recent book, The Literary Mafia: Jews, Publishing, and Postwar American Literature. The book is an investigation into the transformation of publishing in the United States from a field in which Jews were systematically excluded to one in which they became ubiquitous.

Lambert is the Sophia Moses Robison Associate Professor of Jewish Studies and English at Wellesley.

This event is co-sponsored with Stanford's Department of English.
