Abstract:

In the 1950s, a Puerto Rican Jew with roots in Leipzig and the Middle East lands in New York Harbor. So begins In the House Un-American, where Carlos ben Carlos Rossman, wannabe heir to the American poet William Carlos Williams and distant cousin of Kafka's boy immigrant sensation Karl Rossman, is forever an absurdist stumble away from falling into a satirical wormhole. In his wanderings among Americans and?un-Americans," Carlos leads us through a mirage of genres and historical lenses?memoirist fictions, essayistic stories, fables, anti-communist scripts. He comes to the Coney Is.
