Who am I to take on Harold Bloom? Well, I am also an American Jew. My four grandparents were not murdered in the Shoah, but my Grandma Clara’s entire family back in a town called Potok Zloty near Lvov were, so I guess I have a right to speak on the Jewish question too. I’m sorry to say that the old lion has gone soft. This is a poor article, beneath the standards of the New York Times.  (Lit Kicks)

Levi Asher doesn’t like Harold Bloom’s review of Trials of the Diaspora: A History of Anti-Semitism in England in the Times Book Review.
