Thom Dunn An important list. Easier to find books HIGHLIGHTING anti-Semitism to show it in a negative light.


message 2: by Susan (new)

Susan All of Agatha Christie (tho she writes great plots) should be included here. And Emma Lathen too.


message 3: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Taras Bulba by Gogol is Jude Süss-like in it's level of antisemitism and depiction of Jews as vermin. It should top this list.
