Book - 1998
Rate this:
A young boy in World War II is compelled to make a terrible choice: abandon his brother & save himself, or reveal his identity & face certain capture by the Nazis. A woman enjoying a private moment by her window is visited by New York City detectives telling her a murder has occurred directly across from her apartment, & finds her marriage irreparably changed by the news. An elderly man, on the last night of his life, finds his kitchen invaded by raucous, hungry ghosts. At the center of these stories by the author of What Is It Then Between Us? (winner of the Bay Area Book Reviewers Association Award) is David, a man poised at midcareer & at the cusp of midlife, torn by his break with his Orthodox Jewish past, achingly uncertain of the future. A richly moving, often funny portrait of three generations of a family straining to hold together in the face of changing cultures & shifting fortunes, LIKE NEVER BEFORE is a stunning new collection from a writer whose stories have been hailed as "astonishing in their sensitivity, clarity, & power."
