About this title


An American Jew finds himself out of time and place growing up in a Jewish "ghetto" in Newark, where assimilation was the unspoken though expected goal. The young Larkey reacts with confusion and soul-searching as he strives for that seemingly ideal American dream. His ultimate rejection of the norm results in an astonishing change of direction and location, which the older Larkey describes in vivid detail as he recalls his journey and survival in a new and different society.

About the Author:

Arieh (Richard) Larkey was born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1935. At the age of eighteen, he volunteered to serve in the American Army and was sent to Occupied Germany as part of the NATO forces, and it was there that his sense of Jewish identity intensified. Following the Six-Day War in 1967, Arieh once again experienced a heightened awareness of his Jewish heritage, which eventually led to his aliya in 1971.

After a thirty-year architectural career, Larkey closed his Jerusalem office and began to write. His books include: A Townhouse in Jerusalem (1996), Ruth Revisited- A Survivor's Journey (2001), Landscape of Conflict, Israel's Northern Frontier (2003), Colors from a Zionist's Palette: A Trilogy (2012), and Grandpa's Mountain: Letters From a Border Kibbutz in Israel (2014).

The author divides his time between his home in the historical town of Zichron Yaacov on the Mediterranean coast, and the frontier town of Mitzpeh Ramon in the heart of the Negev Desert in southern Israel, but often returns to his mountain-top retreat on Kibbutz Misgav-Am in the Galilee, when the spirit moves or his muse beckons.
