The Holocaust kid : stories by Sonia Pilcer( Book )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Collection of linked autobiographical stories is part of a growing body of work by American Second Generation Holocaust writers. But from the first story, "Do You Deserve to Live?" when Zosha Palovsky summons her "schlock muse in rhinestone harlequin glasses, cabana pants, and spiked heels" to write Elizabeth Taylor stories for Movie Screen magazine, we know we are in new terrain. Zosha was born in a DP camp in Germany, the daughter of Holocaust survivors, but she has grown up in Brooklyn and Washington Heights, joined a Latina gang, and refused to attend a yeshiva. Her spirit is untamed: she's a rebel, outspoken, sexually liberated, determined to live her own life free of her parents' past. And yet, even the daring, defiant "Holocaust Kid" cannot escape." "Obsessed with events that took place before her birth, Zosha's entire life is touched by the war. She has dreams of Auschwitz, is invited to a fellow artist's "happening" that turns out to be a Holocaust psychodrama, and writes under pseudonyms of those lost in the camps. She falls in love with "her own private Nazi," and then has an affair with a kinky Holocaust scholar. She confounds her parents: Why can't she get married like a normal person and give them grandchildren? How are they to understand their American daughter?"--Jacket

At the age of eighteen, nice Jewish girl Hannah Wolf has two burning ambitions: to escape the confines of family life in Flushing, Queens - and to be swept off her feet by a clean-cut Ivy League Mr. Right.

The last hotel : a novel in suites by Sonia Pilcer( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It's the late 1970s. Aging sirens, dreamers, eccentrics and connivers live in a small residential hotel on the Upper West Side. Their tiny suites, separated by cracked plaster walls, are paved with golden stories, woven together in this novel of funny, intimate moments between neighbors. The Last Hotel reminds us of how New York was once a grittier, poorer city, full of warmth and character."--Page 4 of cover
