Reading Something Into Some Books

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/arts/article/reading_something_into_some_books_20031107

November is Jewish book month, so let me say this: "Daniel Deronda" is one of the greatest Jewish books ever written by a non-Jew. It is two different books, one about a beautiful young woman, Gwendolen, who decides on a bad marriage, and Daniel who is tempted by Gwendolen but falls for Mirah -- a Jewish woman -- and gets involved in her family, even as he discovers that he is, in fact, Jewish himself.
