AMHERST, Mass. - University of Massachusetts emeritus English professor Jules Chametzky is one of four co-editors currently compiling the first Norton Anthology of Jewish-American Literature. The anthology, which is expected to be released in 1999, is part of the prestigious Norton series used in college and high school classrooms nationwide. "This will establish to some extent what works of Jewish-American literature will become part of the canon," says Chametzky. "It’s a great honor, and yet also a great responsibility, to be involved."
