Al Alvarez, Elaine Feinstein and Clive Sinclair: A Tribute

David Herman, Bryan Cheyette, Natasha Lehrer

Jewish Book Week 2020

David Herman chair
Bryan Cheyette speaker
Natasha Lehrer speaker

In the past two years we have lost three of the greatest Anglo-Jewish writers of their generation: the poet Elaine Feinstein (1930-2019), the novelist and short story writer Clive Sinclair (1940-2018) and the writer and critic Al Alvarez (1929-2019). They introduced a new voice to Jewish writing in post-war Britain.

A panel including the translator and literary editor Natasha Lehrer, and the critics Professor Bryan Cheyette and David Herman (chair) pay tribute to these three remarkable writers.


Natasha Lehrer is a literary critic, editor and translator of fiction and non-fiction from French to English. She writes for the TLS, the Guardian, the Nation, and Ha’aretz, among others.

Bryan Cheyette is Chair in Modern Literature at the University of Reading, and a Fellow of the English Association. He has published ten books, most recently Diasporas of the Mind.

David Herman is a former TV producer and has been a freelance writer for the past 15 years, writing for the New Statesman, Prospect, the Guardian and The Independent. He is chief fiction reviewer of The Jewish Chronicle.

In Association with the TLS.
