Liverpool University Press

This chapter presents an interview with novelist Linda Grant, who was born in Liverpool in 1951, the daughter of Russian and Polish Jewish immigrants. Between 1995 and 2000 she was a feature writer for the Guardian, and was for five years a columnist on the Jewish Chronicle. Her novels include The Cast Iron Shore (1996), When I Lived in Modern Times (2000), and The People on the Street: A Writer's View of Israel (2006). The interview covers topics such as her first memories of Liverpool; her awareness of her family's Jewishness; and Jewish life in the city.
