    Abstract: "Leon Uris returns to the land of his acclaimed best-seller Exodus for an epic story of hate and love, vengeance and forgiveness and forgiveness.

    Abstract: "The renowned biographer's definitive portrait of a literary titan. Appointed by Philip Roth and granted independence and complete access, Blake Bailey spent years poring over Roth's personal archive, interviewing his friends, lovers, and colleagues, and engaging Roth himself in breathtakingly candid conversations. The result is an indelible portrait of an American master and of the postwar literary scene. Bailey shows how Roth emerged from a lower-middle-class Jewish milieu to achieve the heights of literary fame, how his career was nearly derailed by his catastrophic first marriage, and how he championed the work of dissident novelists behind the Iron Curtain. Bailey examines Roth's rivalrous friendships with Saul Bellow, John Updike, and William Styron, and reveals the truths of his florid love life, culminating in his almost-twenty-year relationship with actress Claire Bloom, who pilloried Roth in her 1996 memoir, Leaving a Doll's House. Tracing Roth's path from realism to farce to metafiction to the tragic masterpieces of the American Trilogy, Bailey explores Roth's engagement with nearly every aspect of postwar American culture"--

Over the next few months new bonds of friendship and love will take hold, while old betrayals will emerge among this unlikely cast of characters, each richly drawn and achingly human: a Russian-born novelist; his Russian-born psychiatrist wife; their precocious child obsessed with K-pop; a struggling Indian American writer; a wildly successful Korean American app developer; a global dandy with three passports; a young flame-thrower of an essayist, originally from the Carolinas; and a movie star, The Actor, whose arrival upsets the equilibrium of this chosen family"--

    Abstract: Das Drehbuch zu „Being John Malkovich“ hat Charlie Kaufman weltberühmt gemacht. Der erste Roman des Oscar-Preisträgers ist ein neuer Meilenstein der amerikanischen Literatur: B. Rosenberg kriegt nichts auf die Reihe, außer Kritiken zu schreiben, die keiner liest. Der New Yorker Stadtneurotiker prahlt mit der schwarzen Hautfarbe seiner Freundin und wehrt sich gegen die Unterstellung, er sei Jude. Nicht einmal ein Geschlecht will er haben und nennt sich einfach nur B. Dann jedoch stößt er auf den längsten jemals gedrehten Film und hat eine Mission: Er möchte den ungesehenen Film der Welt zeigen. Doch das Meisterwerk geht in Flammen auf, und B. kann es nur nachträumen. Ein unendlicher Spaß, der jeden Rahmen sprengt.

It provides an introduction to many facets of that history, including the ways in which waves of immigration shaped New York's Jewish community; Jewish cultural production in English, Yiddish, Ladino, and German; New York's contribution to the development of American Judaism; Jewish interaction with other ethnic and religious groups; and Jewish participation in the politics and culture of the city as a whole. Each chapter is written by an expert in the field, and includes a bibliography for further reading. The Jewish Metropolis captures the diversity of the Jewish experience in New York"--

    Abstract: Der in den USA recht prominente Altphilologe, Kritiker und Autor D.A. Mendelsohn wurde in Deutschland bislang nur durch seine Shoah-Dokumentation "Die Verlorenen" (BA 10/10) bekannt. Sein neues Buch, das in den USA schon sehr erfolgreich war und Literatur-Preise erhielt, ist eine ungewöhnliche Mischung aus autobiografischer Spurensuche und einer aktuellen Interpretation der "Odyssee". Mendelsohn, Professor an einer amerikanischen Universität, veranstaltet ein Seminar über Homers "Odyssee", an dem auch sein 81-jähriger Vater teilnimmt. Über die Seminar-Diskussionen kommen sich Vater und Sohn wieder näher, wobei Mendelsohn in zentralen Motiven und Szenen der "Odyssee" eigene Lebenskonstellationen wiederentdeckt. Die neu gewonnene Nähe zwischen Vater und Sohn vertieft sich auf einer gemeinsamen Schiffsreise auf den Spuren des Odysseus im östlichen Mittelmeer

    Abstract: "The Pulitzer finalist delivers his best work yet--a brilliant, streamlined comic novel, reminiscent of early Philip Roth and of his own most masterful stories, about a son's failure to say Kaddish for his father Larry is an atheist in a family of orthodox Memphis Jews. When his father dies, it is his responsibility as the surviving son to recite the Kaddish, the Jewish prayer for the dead, every day for eleven months. To the horror and dismay of his mother and sisters, Larry refuses--thus imperiling the fate of his father's soul. To appease them, and in penance for failing to mourn his father correctly, he hatches an ingenious if cynical plan, hiring a stranger through a website called Kaddish.com to recite the daily prayer and shepherd his father's soul safely to rest. This is Nathan Englander's freshest and funniest work to date--a satire that touches, lightly and with unforgettable humor, on the conflict between religious and secular worlds, and the hypocrisies that run through both. A novel about atonement; about spiritual redemption; and about the soul-sickening temptations of the internet, which, like God, is everywhere"--

    Abstract: "He was, according to Pauline Kael, 'the greatest American screenwriter.' Jean-Luc Godard called him 'a genius' who 'invented 80 percent of what is used in Hollywood movies today.' Besides tossing off dozens of now-classic scripts--including Scarface,Twentieth Century, and Notorious--Ben Hecht was known in his day as ace reporter, celebrated playwright, taboo-busting novelist, and the most quick-witted of provocateurs. During World War II, he also emerged as an outspoken crusader for the imperiled Jews of Europe, and later he became a fierce propagandist for pre-1948 Palestine's Jewish terrorist underground. Whatever the outrage he stirred, this self-declared 'child of the century' came to embody much that defined America--especially Jewish America--in his time. Hecht's fame has dimmed with the decades, but Adina Hoffman's vivid portrait brings this charismatic and contradictory figure back to life on the page. Hecht was a renaissance man of dazzling sorts, and Hoffman--critically acclaimed biographer, former film critic, and eloquent commentator on Middle Eastern culture and politics--is uniquely suited to capture him in all his modes"--Jacket

    Abstract: "What does it mean to read, and to teach, Jewish American and Holocaust literatures in the early decades of the twenty-first century? New directions and new forms of expression have emerged, both in the invention of narratives and in the methodologies and discursive approaches taken toward these texts. The premise of this book is that despite moving further away in time, the Holocaust continues to shape and inform contemporary Jewish American writing. Divided into analytical and pedagogical sections, the chapters present a range of possibilities for thinking about these literatures. Contributors address such genres as biography, the graphic novel, alternate history, midrash, poetry, and third-generation and hidden-child Holocaust narratives. Both canonical and contemporary authors are covered, including Michael Chabon, Nathan Englander, Anne Frank, Dara Horn, Joe Kupert, Philip Roth, and William Styron"...

    Abstract: In A Hundred Acres of America: The Geography of Jewish American Literary History, Michael Hoberman introduces cultural geography as an alternative approach to the immigrant model. Cultural geography allows Hoberman to restore Jewish American writers to their roles as important, active members of the American literary landscape from the 1850s to the present, and to argue that Jewish history, American literary history, and the inhabitation of American geography are, and always have been, contiguous entities. A Hundred Acres of America makes its case by investigating both canonical and extra-canonical literary depictions of six geographies: the frontier, the small town, the urban, the suburban, America as seen from Europe, and Israel as seen from America. Hoberman reads dozens of representative texts closely, and analyzes a wide range of authors, from frontier-era memoirists and turn-of-the-century native-born reformers to contemporary novelists. He adroitly demonstrates that Jewish American authors are not only present throughout American literary history, but actively shaped this history with writings that often subverted or contradicted the ways their non-Jewish peers depicted these geographies"--

    Abstract: Gertrude Stein (1874–1946) entwickelte eine einzigartige Theatertheorie. Diese verbindet Kritik an Zwangsstrukturen bürgerlicher Subjektivierung in den USA mit ganz eigenen ästhetischen Modellen und therapeutischen Empfehlungen. Steins therapeutische Wirkungsästhetik des Theaters entfaltet sich nicht in Manifesten und Traktaten, sondern in ihren frühen Romanen und autobiographischen Schriften. Daher blieb sie von der internationalen Forschung bislang unbeachtet. Torsten Josts Studie schließt diese Lücke: Stein wird als eine von William James’ Psychologie inspirierte Kunst- und Theatertheoretikerin lesbar gemacht, deren Ideen sich deutlich von Theaterästhetiken der europäischen Avantgardebewegungen unterscheiden. Damit wird sie „endlich zu jener gewichtigen Stimme, die ihr im Grunde von jeher gebührt hätte.“ (Matthias Warstat)

    Abstract: Wissend, dass hinter der Autorin des Bestsellers "Die Geschichte der Liebe" eine Scheidung liegt, liest sich das Leiden an sich, am Schreiben und Nichtschreibenkönnen, die Suche nach innerer Heimat der Ich-Erzählerin Nicole zwangsläufig autobiografisch. Im Nachdenken zieht sie in geheime Bewusstseins-Nischen, im Zentrum der Kindheits-Ferienort, das Hilton in Tel Aviv, ein "Monolith", der ihr zur Metapher wird. Erst langsam baut sich Verstehen auf, warum es auch den 68-jährigen amerikanischen Millionär Epstein dorthin getrieben hat, auch er nun ehelos, in Metamorphose. Mit ungeheurer Erzählkraft, in berückenden Sätzen, verweben sich Ebenen, ohne sich zu berühren, eingeschlossen eine fantastische Geschichte um Kafkas Nachleben in Israel. Während Nicole in Kafkas Wüstenhütte in alten Büchern frühere Wälder Israels betrachtet, machen Epsteins Setzlinge eine Wüste zum Wald...

    Abstract: "Moonglow unfolds as the deathbed confession of a man the narrator refers to only as 'my grandfather.' It is a tale of madness, of war and adventure, of sex and marriage and desire, of existential doubt and model rocketry, of the shining aspirations and demonic underpinnings of American technological accomplishment at midcentury, and, above all, of the destructive impact--and the creative power--of keeping secrets and telling lies. It is a portrait of the difficult but passionate love between the narrator's grandfather and his grandmother, an enigmatic woman broken by her experience growing up in war-torn France. It is also a tour de force of speculative autobiography in which Chabon devises and reveals a secret history of his own imagination. From the Jewish slums of prewar South Philadelphia to the invasion of Germany, from a Florida retirement village to the penal utopia of New York's Wallkill prison, from the heyday of the space program to the twilight of the 'American Century,' the novel revisits an entire era through a single life and collapses a lifetime into a single week. A lie that tells the truth, a work of fictional nonfiction, an autobiography wrapped in a novel disguised as a memoir, Moonglow is Chabon at his most moving and inventive" -- "Moonglow unfolds as the deathbed confession of a man the narrator refers to only as "my grandfather."
