Ms. Brent didn't have much to work with since there was so little character development.
What character would you cut from Jewish and Indian and Other Stories?
The Indian girl from the title story.
Any additional comments?
This work is a political and religious polemic masquerading as a collection of short stories.
The stories themselves are quite amateurish; there is minimal character development. The stories are badly structured, with limited plotting, do not have any “falling action,” and end as if the author simply ran out of something else to say. The theme is uniform though out the stories which is that Jews are religiously, culturally, and politically flawed and can only be “saved” by giving up their Jewish identity. The author’s point of view is not per se anti-Semitic. It is more accurate to describe it as anti-Judaism. The publisher, Hidden Kingdom Books, has published several other books with the same and similar themes.
