The rabbi by Noah Gordon( Book )
31 editions published between 1967 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 126 libraries worldwide
Michael Kind, descendiente de judíos criado en un barrio marginal de Nueva York, se debate entre el antagónico legado recibido por su abuelo y su educador, y el proporcionado por su padre. El abuelo le trasmitió su conciencia de pertenencia a la comunidad judía, mientras que su educador se encargó de la enseñanza religiosa. Como contrapunto a esa instrucción anclada en los orígenes de su pueblo, Michael comenzó de la mano de su padre a valorar la libertad y a atreverse a cuestionar las normas. Las dos caras de esa formación se reflejarán en la vida de Michael adulto, quien decidirá convertirse en un rabino tolerante y abierto, dispuesto a enfrentarse a todos aquellos obstáculos religiosos y sociales que se opongan a su relación con una mujer que no pertenece a la comunidad judía. Con El rabino -a la que The Saturday Review calificó como "Una obra épica sobre el judaísmo en América"- Noah Gordon confirma una vez más ser uno de los referentes del género de narrativa histórica

Portnoy's complaint by Philip Roth( Book )
9 editions published between 1969 and 2000 in Spanish and held by 25 libraries worldwide
Along with Saul Bellow's Herzog, Philip Roth's Portnoy's Complaint defined Jewish American literature in the 1960s. Roth's masterpiece takes place on the couch of a psychoanalyst, an appropriate jumping-off place for an insanely comical novel about the Jewish American experience. Roth has written several great books--Goodbye, Columbus and When She Was Good among them, but it is perhaps Portnoy's Complaint for which he is best known
