Shalom Auslander - What Does G-D Have To Do With It? - Episode 46
I am really excited to bring you to today's guests actually since the moment I picked up his book, Foreskin Lament, last summer, I was stricken by this man's way of storytelling, his personal journey. As I began to learn more about him I found out there was a lot of which I related to him. We did grew up in similar backgrounds in Orthodox homes. And though his journey and specifics are very different from mine, there was a lot that I connected with and the way he expressed his feelings and his emotions.
Shalom Auslander is an American novelist and author and he has written many essays, short stories, and a few novels, most recently, Mother For Dinner. I just finished reading Mother For Dinner and it's a fantastic creative novel, a great story which has many, many layers to it. I highly recommend you reading it. Shalom's work has been described, "Dark Jewish humor, as masochistic and taboo possible."
On todays shows Shalom lets us delve into his process, what inspires him, his journey, his relationship with God, and several others of his releases. Shalom is a really real and raw human being, and it's really cool to have been shares to share space with him.
You can click the links below to check out several of Shalom's writing and I highly recommend you purchase one of his books.
