Abstract:

Saul Bellow. Philip Roth. Allen Ginsberg. Isaac Bashevis Singer. These are the great ones, the Jewish American writers who forged not just a new literary style in the twentieth century but a new collective conscience for the age. Their work is as timeless as language itself, as eternal as the human drama.

Here, editor Jerome Charyn-himself a renowned Jewish American writer whose most recent novel, The Green Lantern, was one of five finalists for the 2005 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction-has compiled nineteen selections from America's most celebrated Jewish writers. To read them is to experience the full potential of the written word, rendered breathlessly. In these pages you will encounter the buzz, at once awesome and mesmerizing, inside the hornet's head. Book jacket.
