I sent the following email to Professor Benjamin Schreier on Saturday. Dr. Schreier is a Professor of English and Jewish Studies, Director of Penn State’s Jewish Studies Program, and Editor of “Studies in American Jewish Literature.”

He’s a graduate of Swarthmore College. He probably knows David Rosenbaum and my French friend, François Picard.

Dr. Scheier writes: “I regularly teach undergraduate courses on American literature, Jewish American literature, ethnic literature, critical reading, and American comedy.”

Dr. Schreier:

I am a 1975 Penn State graduate (B.A. Journalism). I wrote to you back in 2016.

May I interest you to take a look at an unusual, brief memoir I recently published: A Meeting of Joyce and Proust? I grew up in a mixed heritage family. My father had an Orthodox Jewish background and my mother was Polish Catholic. The text is on academia.edu. The link is
