by Edited by Laurel Snyder - £9.99 Soft Skull Press (2006)
paperback ISBN 13: 9781933368245 | ISBN 10: 1933368241
By turns tragic and funny, religious and heartbreaking, angry and surprisingly familiar, Half/Life represents the altogether diverse memories and reflections of a handful of Half-Jews, among them Thisbe Nissen, Katharine Weber, Jennifer Traig, Jeff Sharlet and Joyce Meynard.
Each of these writers was born into the so-called "dilemma of intermarriage," and each has spent a lifetime grappling with how to define themselves...or not.
"A thoughful, fun and fabulous collection - not just for children of interfaith marriages, but for anyone who has ever felt conflicted, questioning, or caught in between.
With her wide-ranging and compulsively readable sections, Laurel Snyder makes a convincing case that living a Half/Life is not about being half empty or half full, but whole (and holy) in your own way."
