Gold’s story, “The Lesson of the Rabbi, the first work of fiction about sexual abuse by a rabbi, was published in 1994 in the journal Bridges, and subsequently in Gold’s first book, Marrow and Other Stories. Now it is available for the first time digitally, thanks to its publication in The Montreal Review.
THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE!
Gold’s forthcoming book, In Sickness and in Health / Yom Kippur in a Gym (two novellas) will be published in 2024 by Guernica Editions. Guernica is an eminent Canadian literary publisher and Gold is proud to be associated with it.
Gold’s story, “Marrow” (which Alice Munro praised, writing to Gold: “Bravo!”) has entered the digital age. “Marrow” was the title story of Gold’s first book, Marrow and Other Stories, which won a Canadian Jewish Book Award. This book was published in 1998, though, before digital publishing, so until now the stories in it have not been available online. But now “Marrow” is (and so is “Final Movement”)! “Marrow” was published on January 6 in The Montréal Review.
Dr. Gold presented a webinar hosted by The National Library of Israel, called “Jewish Fiction Written in 16 Languages: Stories as Reflections of Jewish Life Across Time and Place.” Here Gold, as part of the celebrations of Jewish Fiction .net’s 10th anniversary year, briefly discusses 16 stories from Jewish Fiction .net – each originally written in a different language (Italian, Serbian, Romanian, Turkish, French, Danish, Polish, Spanish, German, Croatian, Hungarian, Russian, English, Hebrew, Ladino, Yiddish) – and relates these stories to some of the central themes in Jewish fiction.
