My friend Barbara Rushkoff writes very witty and moving personal narratives. Her old print 'zine Plotz was a hysterically funny and honest take on Jewish identity. And her book Jewish Holiday Fun For You! is a must-have for irreverent Jews everywhere. Barbara has been away from the keyboard for a while, but she recently wrote a terrific comic strip for SMITH magazine's online Webcomix series "Next-Door Neighbor." Titled "Glenna Evans," Barbara's strip is funny, touching, and well-illustrated by Nathan Schreiber. "Glenna Evans" by Barbara Rushkoff & Nathan Schreiber
