Julie Burchill to crowdfund new book ‘Unchosen: The Memoirs of a Philosemite’
(This used to be called subscription publishing, and it’s how the Audubon folios came about, to name just one famous book.)
The title will be “part-memoir, part love letter, part meditation” and will also cover topics such as Jews in culture and the rise of new anti-Semitism; Burchill described it as “like An Education, but with more drugs, more sex and a lot more Jews” .
She said: “This is the one book I really want to write. They say you can never get over your first love, and in my case they were right. But, typically greedy, my first love was a whole race of people—the Jews.”
