Growing up as a blonde, popular, West Country schoolgirl, Julie Burchill was the unlikeliest convert to militant Zionism but learning of the cruelty the Jewish people faced throughout history turned her into their biggest champion.From her marriage to a not Jewish enough husband to drunken holidays in Israel, arguments with lesbian rabbis to being banned from her local synagogue, this is a brilliantly funny and unflinchingly honest account of a philo-Semite that will shock and delight in equal parts.Join Julie as she examines her 40-year obsession with the Jewish people and recounts a love affair that is as hedonistic, passionate and outspoken as its author. This is a frivolous book about a serious subject that is now more important than ever. Its An Education, but with more sex, more violence and a lot more Jews.
