Bernard-Henri Lévy Inks Deal With Random House

By Maryann Yin 

Genius of Judaism (GalleyCat)Bernard-Henri Lévy has signed a deal with Random House. The publisher will release an English translation of Lévy’s 2016 book, The Genius of Judaism.

Steven B. Kennedy served as the translator on this project. The publication date has been scheduled for January 10, 2017.

Here’s more from the press release: “The Genius of Judaism offers a new vision of what it means to be a Jew. It is rooted in the Talmudic traditions of argument and conflict. At the very heart of the matter is an obligation to the other, to the dispossessed, and to the forgotten, an obligation that, as Lévy vividly recounts, he has sought to embody over decades of championing ‘lost causes,’ from Bosnia to Africa’s forgotten wars, from Libya to the Kurdish Peshmerga’s desperate fight against the Islamic State.”
