Andrei Codrescu

Is Andrei Codrescu Jewish? I've always assumed so; I associate him with Tristan Tzara (ne Sammy Rosenstock) as a Secular Jewish Poet practicing Radical Poetics, whatever those loaded terms may mean. In any case, a lovely post about a reading he gave recently, with lots of fine quotes and links to audio, etc., over at the Velveteen Rabbi. Worth a look!

Glad you enjoyed the post! I'm pretty sure Andrei is Jewish; at the reading I attended he told a funny story about visiting his father's grave in Israel and needing to say kaddish...
