To the Editor:
Forgive this far too belated response. (But note: “belated” encompasses “elated.”) It was so very kind of you to include Sarah Rindner Blum’s generous review in your distinguished publication [“Living Antiquities: Ozick, Great Books & Judaism
, March 22]. I’m afraid that Antiquities
has elicited much misunderstanding and perplexity, which increases my gratitude for a reading that sees into its Jewish meanings.
With thanks to reviewer and publisher!
