      >"This is a book about reading midrash ... and about the challenges that
      >this act of reading involves. As such, this book is about an experience as
      >much as a subject, and about how that experience has changed in the recent

      >deconstruction, cultural studies, indeed virtually all the modes of
      >postmodernism as they have come into fashion and gone out of it. Under the
