In 2002, Heeb magazine made its controversial debut. The title immediately triggered a conversation among Jewish groups, and the magazine quickly found an electric following among young Jews and hipsters who were moved by its irreverence and fierce unassimilationist standpoint. The quarterly, which features provocative interviews with personalities as varied as Naomi Wolf, Jeremy Piven and the Beastie Boys, and photo spreads as unlikely as a Neil Diamond centerfold and 'Sweatshop Chic,' has garnered consistent media attention in publications ranging from The New York Times to the Howard Stern Show and a readership of over 150,000 worldwide. The success of Heeb Storytelling has paved the way for the book. The stories capture a unique moment in time for a generation of Jews who have lost their ties with traditional Jewish life, but still consider themselves Jewish. Sex, Drugs and Gefilte Fish: The Heeb Storytelling Collection will bring together stories--humorous, self-reflective tales about angst-ridden experiences - from some of this generation's leading writers, comedians, actors, artists and musicians.
