    Karen Mack and Jennifer Kaufman entered the literary scene in 2007 with a debut novel titled “Literacy and Longing in L.A.,” a lively, offbeat chronicle of a contemporary woman in crisis that was described by Booklist as “book lust meets chick lit.” Love of books played as...

  • Michael Fassbender on “Shame,” sadism, playing a Jewish supervillain and why he’s not in therapy

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    “Shame, shame, shame, shame,” Michael Fassbender, who very much seems to be the actor of the moment, sang in a goofy baritone recently.  His impromptu ditty was unexpected, given that he was in the middle of an intense discussion about his two latest films:  Steve McQueen’s...

    February 27, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    Decades after Sigmund Freud probed unconscious human drives in his case histories, his grandson, Lucian, appeared to do the same on canvas. The 110 works in his retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art reveal his subjects in unflinching, microscopic detail -- enough to make...

  • Have You But One Blessing?

    By Rabbi Ed Feinstein

    November 7, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    It began with the first two human born into this world, the world's first brothers.

    In the course of time, Cain brought an offering to the Lord from the fruit of the soil. Abel, for his part, brought the choicest of the firstlings of his flock. The Lord paid heed to Abel and his...

  • Analyzing Freud

    By Naomi Pfefferman
