Today we venture into the historical intricacies of 1492 Spain with Eric Weintraub, author of "South of Sepharad.” Weintraub's journey from a captivating trip to Granada to penning a novel illuminates the lesser-known sagas of Jewish and Muslim expulsions. His book delves into the life of Vidal, a Jewish physician, and his family's turbulent experiences amidst the Alhambra Decree and the Spanish Inquisition. This insightful interview not only uncovers Weintraub's methodical research and writing process but also offers a peek into emerging trends in historical fiction.
