Three prototypes have dominated the portrayal of Jewish characters in South African English fiction from 1880 to 1992: the evil Jew, the Wandering Jew and the good Jew. In this extensively researched, wide ranging and revealing book, Marcia Leveson examines the image of the Jew in the works of both Gentiles, Jewish, and white and black authors.
Marcia Leveson's "tone is sharp and unapologetic; given the painfulness of much of the material" - Dan Jacobson.
