Women at Heart

Judith Paris

Mordecai's First Brush with Love: New Stories by Jewish Women in Britain (2004), edited by Laura Phillips and Marion Baraitser, includes stories by prominent writers including Lana Citron, Joan Michelson, Elizabeth Russell Taylor and Erica Wagner. They focus on everyday concerns of the human heart, single motherhood, intermarriage, eating and its problems, the dilemma of split identity with a bold variety of voices: comic, celebratory, compassionate and violent.

To celebrate the launch of Mordecai's First Brush with Love: New Stories by Jewish Women in Britain, actress Judith Paris read selected extracts and the editors discussed the making of the book with author Joan Michelson.
