Clive Sinclair has published 14 books of fiction – The Lady and the Laptop received major critical acclaim in England and he is noted for his criticism, including a study of Isaac Bashevis and Isaac Joshua Singer, – a collection of his stories, Bedbugs, was published last year by Syracuse University Press.
Clive Sinclair will speak on English attitudes to Venice, discussing Dreamers of the Ghetto- the stories of Israel Zangwill (1898) – as well as Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice.
This talk will take place in Murray Baumgarten’s class “Jewish Writers and the European City.” It is open to the public and will be followed by a discussion.
