Yid Lit: Emily Gould
Whether she meant to or not, 28-year-old Emily Gould has become something of a poster child for a life lived openly online. As an editor at the online magazine, Gawker, she documented the comings and goings of New York media elite, and on her personal blog, she wrote about dating, cheating and searching for love. She is the author of a new memoir which combines those subjects called “And the Heart Says Whatever.”
She stopped by the Forward studios recently to talk about the book and her take on the Jewish prohibition of speaking ill of others called lashon hora.
