Jake Marmer


Was recently interviewed by a Jewish mag out of Minnesota – http://tcjewfolk.com/poet-with-chutzpah-jake-marmer/. For some reason they dubbed Jewish slam poets as “poet with chutzpah”. Kinda don’t like chutzpah. As vocalized in the interview…

On a separate note, MJL published my piece on herring. ha! The funniest thing about it: a man named Herb emailed me – he googled “shmaltz herring”, found the article, and saw that I mentioned my great-grandmother being from the shtetl called Haschevato. His family is too, from there, going way back. He’s looking for relatives – the Nudelman family. If you happen to be a Nudelman hit me up, I’ll introduce you to Herb.
