Heeb just announced their latest Heeb100. I remember when Joshua Neuman, the publisher, called me excited to tell me that I would be in the 100 on the same page as Jonathan Lethem. I guess he knew that I was a fan of “Fortress of Solitude” and Motherless Brooklyn”. Well, it’s a couple years later and, though the choices, at least to me are more obscure and less Jewy Jewy…I’m excited to check em out….unless of course it’s in their German issue….I wouldn’t be caught dead with that issue….
here are their names (in case you wanna go nutz, build your who is who in the Jew velt database and add them all on facebook).
