Abstract:

Hailed by the New York Times as coming & ldquo;closer than anyone to writing The Great American Novel, & rdquo; Lore Segal stuns with this passionate love story of a refugee from Hitler & rsquo;s Europe and a witty, hard-drinking black intellectual For Ilka Weissnix, everything is new. Having recently arrived in the United States, she is determined to escape the immigrant communities of New York and boards a train headed west to discover & ldquo;the real America. & rdquo; She finds Carter Bayoux & ldquo;sitting on a stool in a bar in the desert, across from the railroad. & rdquo; Older, portly, experienced, and black, Carter is magnetic. To Ilka, he exemplifies the values and cultures of a changing America. In order to understand her new country and her new love, Ilka throws herself into Carter & rsquo;s dizzying world, nurses him through his bouts of depression and his alcoholism, and becomes fascinated by stories of his amorous past. But Carter & rsquo;s ghosts are ever present, and soon Ilka finds herself torn between saving him and saving her own future. With a foreword by Stanley Crouch, Her First American is the poignant story of an immigrant experience in a country of endless possibilities and of a rich and breathtaking love that is doomed from the start.
