Julian Levinson

Julian Levinson reads from his book Exiles on Main Street: Jewish American Writers and American Literary Cultur” (2008) published by Indiana University Press.  We talk about Walt Whitman, Emma Lazarus and The Rolling Stones.  We also talk about the origins of this project– and why the introduction begins with this from Allen Ginsberg’s America:  “America I still haven’t told you what you did to Uncle Max after he came over from Russia.”
