Alex Rider Author On Being Jewish

Published on April 20, 2007 with 1 Comment

Anthony HorowitzAlex Rider author Anthony Horowitz has revealed that cheder classes and some fellow female Jews turned him off being more religious.

In an interview with the Jewish Chronicle, Horowitz said: “Being Jewish is a crucial part of my make-up but any chance of being a practising Jew was driven out by well-meaning parents, who dragged me to Sunday school, and cruel, spiteful North London girls in the 1960s.”

Horowitz also gave further details of Matt Freeman’s background in the Power of Five series of books which has just seen the latest installment Nightrise published.

“He’s called Freeman mainly because his job is to free humanity from the grip of evil. Since he has no parents, his religion is a mystery — but given he is an iconic figure, like a prophet, he very well could be Jewish.”
