Shalom, Arizona!

This morning the Tucson-based weekly Arizona Jewish Post newspaper published a lovely Paradise Lust review/interview.  Readers of this blog (hi Mom!) may be familiar with this publication, as my very own Jewish mother is in fact an Assistant Editor there, which the paper very professionally discloses. And as I mention in the piece, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the amount of interest in the book from Jewish programs and publications.  This surprises me because the Eden-seekers I write about, with the notable exception of Friedrich Delitzsch, are not at all Jewish.  (And Delitzsch’s father converted the family to Lutheranism in pre-war Germany.) But this illustrates what I’m starting to learn about the Garden of Eden: even if it never occurred to you to search for Eden on Earth, we’re still fascinated by the idea of Eden.
