In an appreciation of the book written on its 40th anniversary, Brandeis professor Yehudah Mirsky described how Mintz and his fellow student activists sought to give voice to a small cohort at once deeply alienated from organized Jewish life and deeply attached to Jewish history and culture. Many of the young leaders of the movement went on to careers in Jewish academia and to lead the institutions they once derided.

Alan L. Mintz traces the reception of Israeli literature in America from the 1970s to the present. He analyzes the influences that have shaped modern Israeli literature and reflects on the cultural differences that have impeded American and American Jewish appreciation of Israeli authors. Mintz then turns his attention to specific writers, examining their reception or lack thereof in America and places them within the emerging unfolding critical dialogue between the Israeli and American literary culture.

For each of them is just as we left him or her. Head down, drowsing, scarcely breathing enough to disturb the cobwebs that now festoon them. The cobweb spinners do not sleep, said the tallest dwarf. Industrious spiders had threaded their webs from finger to face, from beard to table.
