Foreskin's Lament: A Memoir by Shalom Auslander
Foreskin's Lament: A Memoir

Jonathan Todd , January 20, 2008

Powells: You describe this piece as "an original essay".
It can hardly be that - Shalom Auslander has stolen the title from Greg McGee's play "Foreskin's Lament", the New Zealand Play of the Year for 1981.
There's nothing original in plagiarism, but why stop with just the title? "... be a man and steal the lot!"
