Synopsis: One of the most enlightening novels about interracial, intercultural love ever written, Her First American is the story of twenty-one-year-old Ilka Weissnix's adventures in America, having survived Hitler and the war. On a trip to the West to explore her new home, Ilka finds "her first American," Carter Bayoux, a troubled black intellectual. Through his eyes she sees America in all its hilarity and barbarity. Her First American has been hailed as a classic of American fiction. Lore Segal employs what The New York Times calls a "mixture of dollery and catastrophe" to achieve an exhilarating balance of humor and pathos.
About the Author: Lore Segal was born in Vienna and educated at the University of London. Her writing has appeared in the New Yorker, New York Times Book Review, and New Republic. She lives in New York City.
