Professor Samuels specializes in the literature and culture of nineteenth-century France and in Jewish Studies. His first book, The Spectacular Past: Popular History and the Novel in Nineteenth-Century France won the Gaddis Smith International Book Prize awarded by The MacMillan Center. We talk with Professor Samuels about his second book, Inventing the Israelite: Jewish Fiction in Nineteenth-Century France, which brings to light an almost totally unknown area of fiction in France.
