Description:

New York. 1962. Orion Books. 1st Printing. Very Good In Worn and Internally Tape-Repaired Dustjacket. 21. 326 pages. hardcover. keywords:. inventory # 5609. FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘Portrait of a Jew deals with my life as a Jew. I wrote it because I wanted to understand who I am - as a Jew - and what the fact of being a Jew has meant in my life. Since this demanded a ruthless honesty with myself I had to analyse all aspects of my being. But my being embraces that of so many other people, the portrait became no longer only my own. There exists, I now believe, a universal Jewish fate. More than my story this is the story of all Jews. I have tried to sum up my—our—position without apology, without caution, without niceties; I wanted to tell everything. I know what awaits me. My enemies will jeer and say that I admit the ‘weaknesses’ of the Jews; my friends— both Jewish and non-Jewish - will say that I give ammunition to the anti-Semites. Above all, I found it essential to avoid postures of respect and easy explanations - they only produce a state of complete paralysis when searching oneself. This book has a special importance for me: it is the beginning of a long struggle against myself and it completes and concludes everything I have written in the past. In any case, it is the book that caused me the greatest pain. I detest it.’ - Albert Memmi. Very Good In Worn and Internally Tape-Repaired Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory # 5609

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Original Publisher: New York : Orion Press 346 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 457669503
