A) It had almost all five star reviews prior to this essay going up. So no, you’re not right.
B) It’s really important to talk about antisemitism and not sweep it under the rug. I am appreciative of the people who have reached out and said they learned something from this essay, something that has implications beyond this book and will hopefully make them more aware of how the Holocaust and Judaism are framed in real life and in works of fiction.
C) I have never said I wanted it to die a horrible death and to never be published again. Please do not put words in my mouth. Thank you.
