Beschreibung

Calisher has been hailed as "stand[ing] vividly with Cather and Fitzgerald" (Cynthia Ozick). In this novel she explores a family united in blood yet divided by ideas. Told with wit and deep acuity, "Sunday Jews "is a tour de force from a writer whose fiction has been compared with Eudora Welty and Henry James.

Portrait

Hortense Calisher has written more than twenty books. Past president of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and of PEN, she has been a National Book Award finalist three times and has won an O. Henry Award, as well as a Guggenheim Fellowship. She lives in New York City.

Pressestimmen

PRAISE FOR"SUNDAY JEWS"
"Wonderful . . . It is at once an old-fashioned family saga, with plot twists worthy of George Eliot's"Daniel Deronda", and, like that novel, a delicate, compassionate meditation on the inheritance and creation of religious, familial, and individual identity."--"The New York Times Book Review"
"Summons a genuinely affecting lyrical elegiac voice, celebrating lives and ways of life as they pass into something else."--"Newsday"
