People Love Dead Jews
Disturbing. The best essayists challenge our thinking and demand that we look at those things that are important. Dara Horn’s critical essays in a collection titled, People Love Dead Jews: Reports from a Haunted Present, disturbed me and challenged me. Horn takes on lies and hypocrisy with focus and insight. She uses anger as power to strengthen her prose and succeeds with great skill in making her critical case. If you are open to the notion of structural racism, Horn makes a compelling case for the global prevalence of structural anti-Semitism. Horn’s passion, scholarship, and insight make these essays important reading that leads a reader toward deeper understanding.
