Descrizione
Janet Burstein argues that American Jewish writers since the 1980s have created a significant literature by wrestling with the troubled legacy of trauma, loss, and exile. Their ranks include Cynthia Ozick, Todd Gitlin, Art Spiegelman, Pearl Abraham, Aryeh Lev Stollman, Jonathan Rosen, and Gerda Lerner. Whether confronting the massive losses of the Holocaust, the sense of ""home"" in exile, or the continuing power of Jewish memory, these Jewish writers search for understanding within ""the little secrets"" of their dark, complicated, and richly furnished past.
