9780810151246: The Sweetheart Is In

The yearnings of a little sister, the hazy memories of a concentration camp liberator, and the romantic entanglements of political activists are portrayed in The Sweetheart Is In, S.L. Wisenberg's first collection of short stories. Each of these edgy, lyrical stories creates its own universe in the space of a few pages even while overlapping characters and themes.

From the Publisher:

Unlike many young Jewish authors, Wisenberg writes of substance and faith, avoiding the superficially cultural Jewishness so prevalent in the genre. Author has good media connections and should elicit both review and interview attention.

From the Back Cover:

The yearnings of a little sister, the hazy memories of a concentration camp liberator, and the romantic entanglements of political activists are portrayed in The Sweetheart Is In, S.L. Wisenberg's first collection of short stories. Each of these edgy, lyrical stories creates its own universe in the space of a few pages even while overlapping characters and themes. The award-winning title story captures the longings, personal and political, of a sensitive girl on the cusp of adolescence as she tries to find her place in the world-and within her self-contained Jewish community in Houston-during the Vietnam era. Wisenberg also reveals a mischievous side when she retells well-known fairy tales in a darkly whimsical fashion.
Wisenberg's work is part of today's renaissance in Jewish storytelling. Many of her characters are forced to navigate between doubt and faith but fortunately equipped with humor and wisdom.

Book Description Northwestern University Press, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In these edgy, lyrical stories, S.L. Wisenberg portrays the yearnings of a little sister, the hazy memories of a concentration camp liberator, and the romantic entanglements of political activists. Each of these stories creates its own universe in the space of a few pages. The award-winning title story captures the longings, personal and political, of a sensitive girl on the cusp of adolescence as she tries to find her place in the world - and within her self-contained Jewish community in Houston - during the Vietnam era. A number of Wisenberg s characters are searching for a deep and real connection with their Jewishness, forced to navigate between doubt and faith but fortunately equipped with humor and wisdom. In the twice-anthologized My Mother s War, a woman negotiates the distance separating her from her mother, a distance between hope and utter despair. In the Beginning is a dark retelling of Genesis, with God a dirty dealer who not only banishes Adam and Eve from the Garden - and not a very comfortable garden at that - but acts in a way that could be considered devilish. Wisenberg s tales cover the spectrum of styles and subjects, but all tap into the rhythms of voices and of life. Her stories already anthologized widely, Wisenberg is part of today s renaissance in Jewish storytelling. Bookseller Inventory # BTE9780810151246
