SKEPTIC, or
Beware of…
Jews Telling Stories

“Philosophers ponder the idea of identity: what it is to give something a name on Monday and have it respond to that name on Friday.”
— Bernard Holland, C12, N.Y. Times, 5/20/96

From my entry of Monday, June 2, 2003:

William Holden and Martha Scott
in “Our Town,” 1940 


Holden            Scott

From a website titled Child of a Voice

“The Talmud says, even in a time when there is no more prophecy there can still be the Daughter of a Voice.

The Tosefot explain: this is like the sound the echo of a hammer makes when it strikes something, and the sound echoes back from mountains. Not the Voice, but a daughter, a child of it.

Not the sound but the echo of a sound. Not the prophecy from God in its purest way, but in a less pure way.

Now because of our sins there is no more prophecy but in a time when there is no prophecy there can be Daughter of a Voice.”

Copyright Abraham Mezrich 2003

From a July 1999 review of a novel:

“The good news is that this is perhaps Ben Mezrich’s finest thriller. The irony is that he used a pen name on it.”

The
novel is
Skeptic;
the author,
Ben Mezrich,
 
used the pen name
Holden Scott.

From an interview
with Ben Mezrich
:

“Mezrich, the author of several critically acclaimed thrillers, came to Boston from Princeton, New Jersey, by way of Harvard University, where he graduated – magna cum laude, mind you – in 1991…. In his Boston apartment…. prominently exhibited was a paperback biography of local boy made good Matt Damon.”
