“Brilliant, original, and funny, this is the book many of us in Jewish and literary studies have been waiting for all these years: an absolutely convincing Jewish-literary-historical account of the impossibility of Jewish literary history and a stirring diagnosis of identity studies more broadly. The Impossible Jew will be a paradigm-shifting book.”
—Daniel Itzkovitz, co-editor of Queer Theory and the Jewish Question
“This is a profound and articulate work of high theory. Summing Up: Highly recommended.”
"The Impossible Jew is a brilliant and valuable contribution to the same field of research Schreier wishes to dismantle, or at least disrupt. It foregrounds a broader, unceasing preoccupation with Jewish identity as an undetermined element scholars will never put to rest."
—Studies in Contemporary Jewry
