About this title

Synopsis:

The Doctor and the Poet, Hanny Lightfoot-Klein's first novel, examines the true nature of love as an elemental force in its many manifestations. In her signature original way, she interweaves these into a highly unusual and captivating love story spanning two world wars and beyond. "It had not been an auspicious time to be a Jew in Europe..."

About the Author:

Lightfoot-Klein is a self-confessed eccentric, savant, pioneer, inveterate gadfly and inspired story teller. This bold and dashing adventuress is the author of four meticulously researched nonfiction books, based on her watershed exploration of the wide spread and taboo genital mutilation practices performed on girls in Africa , as well as those genital mutilations still practiced just as widely on non-consenting minors of both sexes in the Western World. She is guided in her celebration of the feminine by the Goddess, who is constantly reinventing her. In the latest of these reinventions, she has served as expert witness in immigration courts all over the English-speaking world on behalf of African women who face genital mutilation and death by "honor killing" if returned to the country from which they have fled. She has to date won asylum for over 100 of these women as well as their American-born daughters. Lightfoot-Klein has now turned her wonderful way with words and her penetrating insights into the human condition into a new genre. "The Doctor and the Poet" is her first novel.
