Joshua Cohen: The Netanyahus

Joshua Cohen, Josh Glancy

Jewish Book Weekend

A rare UK event with Joshua Cohen, who The Washington Post called ‘maybe America’s greatest living writer’.


His previous novels Witz, Book of Numbers and Moving Kings were named books of the year by NPR, New York Magazine and the Village Voice, while his short story and essay collections Four New Messages and Attention received the same honours from the New Yorker and Wired.

His latest The Netanyahus is pitched as a fictional account of ‘a minor and ultimately even negligible episode in the history of a very famous family’, as in the late 1950s not-quite-upstate New York historian Ruben Blum finds himself the reluctant host to Benzion Netanyahu and family.

Described as a ‘shrewd, exuberant, exhilarating and merry novel’ by Cynthia Ozick and ‘absorbing, delightful, hilarious, breath-taking and the best and most relevant novel I’ve read in what feels like forever’ by Taffy Brodesser-Akner, Joshua Cohen joins us to discuss The Netanyahus and his illustrious career to date with Sunday Times special correspondent Josh Glancy.

The Netanyahus will be available to purchase at the Blackwell’s pop-up bookstall on Sun 3 Oct.
