"This sprawling, warm-hearted story spans six continents and one hundred years, from the 1900 Sabbath table of Reizl and Lazar Solomon and their young sons, in Radautz, Bukovina, to a glorious millennial reunion in Paris. "Dawid presents the family history in twenty-four accounts of varying length, rich in personal vignettes though mindful of the overriding historical arc. Here is Hans, a grandson of Reizl and Lazar, 'resident alien' of Tientsin, North China,1939; Berthold, another grandson, on day 555 of his imprisonment in a Communist prison cell, 1950; great-granddaughters Toni and Marguerite, 'les Belles Jumelles,' internationally acclaimed Belgian duo-pianists, 1990s. "The final story, set in Neuilly, a suburb of Paris, is an amazing set piece. From far-flung corners of the world, e.g., Dakar, Liverpool, Haifa, San Francisco, Saigon, Moscow, Capetown, Rio, Brussels, Dublin, New York, the descendants of Reizl and Lazar -- gay, straight, multi-ethnic, multi-lingual, multi-racial, multi-talented -- assemble in boisterous celebration of the ninety-second birthday of Freda, granddaughter of Reizl and Lazar, oldest surviving member of the family, and the birth of the new millennium." Jewish Book World, Winter 2009

From the Author:

In a recent letter to me, novelist Cynthia Ozick wrote of DARKNESS: "Fiction, yes, but the true history of your family through the lens of exactly-how-it-must-have-been. And thereby almost a Document; and surely a Memory; if not yourown, then the memories of those who lived it. THE story of our time; and to tell it, and then retell it, and then to tell it yet again, is our obligation. Which you have fulfilled from your cabin on a mountaintop! From mountaintops come the great calls to be civilized. You've both called and answered." Cynthia Ozick?s latest book is Dictation: A Quartet Her Collected Stories were published in 2006.

About the Author:

AND DARKNESS WAS UNDER HIS FEET is Annie Dawid?s third volume of fiction, after YORK FERRY: A NOVEL (Cane Hill Press, 1993) and LILY IN THE DESERT: STORIES (Carnegie- Mellon University Press, 2001). Recent short fiction has appeared in Glimmer Train Stories and Driftwood. The first chapter of her forthcoming historical narrative, PARADISE UNDONE; A NOVEL OF JONESTOWN, was a semi-finalist at the Amazon/Penguin Breakthrough Novel Contest in 2008. A former professor of English and director of creative writing at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, Annie left full-time teaching for writing in 2005. She writes essays and reviews for High Country News, The Jewish Review and The Denver Post. A photographer and rugmaker, Annie sells her work in several Colorado galleries. In 2006, she opened Bloomsbury West, a writer/artist retreat in Silver Cliff, Colorado.
