unclean lips cover cropped

My new book, Unclean Lips: Obscenity, Jews, and American Culture, was published by New York University Press in December 2013. It explores the interventions made by Jews in debates about how Americans talk about and represent sex. You can listen to a podcast about the book here, and more about the project can be found here.
