Shalom Auslander has been called “America’s hottest, funniest, most controversial young Jewish memoirist” and his work has been dubbed “blackly hilarious” by The Times of London. He has published articles in Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, Tablet, and The New Yorker, and is a regular contributor to Public Radio International’s This American Life. He is the author of the short-story collection Beware of God and the acclaimed memoir Foreskin’s Lament. His novel, Hope: A Tragedy, was just released to rave reviews!
