Friday Finding

Savtadotty just drew my attention to this blog. Apart from being totally cute (as per photograph), Lawrence is also the anthologizer of Kosher Meat, a collection of short stories about being gay and Jewish, which, due to issues of size and my cleaner's apparent sense of humor, sits happily on my bookshelf next to The Binding of Isaac, Religious Murders & Kabbalah - Seeds of Jewish Extremism and Alienation?, itself a collection of essays, albeit on a somewhat different topic, by Lippman Bodoff.

Lawrence also freelances as a translator, which, those of you who know me know that I do too (and those of you who don't know me, and who didn't know this little snippet of info up till now, now do), and has some insightful comments to make on the issue of painful clients, here.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to rss him (or many others, for that matter. Help!), so I'm going to have to just keep checking his blog for updates the old way ...

Hola, and thanks for your comments. The one problem with commenting without a Livejournal account is that you don't get notifications if someone replies to your comments (that's one reason many people create a Livejournal account just for posting, even if their main blog is elsewhere).

Glad you enjoyed my musings on the freelancing life--not to mention my anthology KOSHER MEAT! :-)

Afraid I'm not sure who in Tel Aviv might sell other books of mine. I believe Tmol Shilsom in Jerusalem had some thins like FOUND TRIBE: JEWISH COMING OUT STORIES for a while, but not sure if they still stock it.

Hey Lawrence, thanks for writing back. I don't get to Tmol Shilshom very often, but I'll have a look around Tel Aviv :) Best of luck with The Future is Queer.
