    Joel Dicker

    Jew Score:



    June 16, 1985 —

    Let us guess, you probably haven't heard of Joel Dicker. That's because you live in America.

    Okay, we realize that a sizable proportion of our audience does not live in America. And those who live in Europe, more specifically in the French-speaking parts of Europe, might have heard of Dicker. Apologies to them.

    Dicker is a writer, who has broken all kinds of records on the old continent. Not only are his books bestsellers and page-turners, they are also critically acclaimed, a rare combination.

    He has even been compared to Philip Roth, possibly because the Swiss-born Dicker mostly writes about...

    American Jews.

    Probably a good reason for him to be better known in America?

    Verdict: Jew.
