About this Item: Kalita Press, White Plains, NY, 2004. Trade paperback. Condition: Very good. Paul Jeffries (Cover and Book Design) (illustrator). Presumed First Edition, First printing. [6], 260, [2] pages. Illustrations. Inscribed by author on the title page. The author is a writer, lecturer and translator. Her by-line has appeared in The New York Times, International Herald Tribune, and Gannet newspapers, among others. She is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Columbia University. During World War II she served in the Women's Army Corps (WAC). Statement by the Author: Red Letter Year -- Munich 1950-51, is about the experiences Gene and I (both veterans of World War II) had as members of the Harvard Refugee Interview Project team of 25 graduate students in Russian language and Soviet affairs from Harvard and Columbia under the sponsorship of the US Air Force. We interviewed former Soviet citizens, Displaced Persons, DPs, to determine what life was like in the Soviet Union, i.e., what makes the Soviets tick. Fifty+ years later there has been growing interest in World War II and the immediate postwar period. Red Letter Year is a compilation of our letters home -- no computers then, just my good old Royal typewriter, five carbons. We share our enchantment with Europe, our first visit to Paris, our insights about Russian DPs and their lives, and our concerns with the remnants of Jewish life in postwar Germany, just ten miles from Dachau. There is a moving memorial to the young Air Force pilot, West Pointer, dear friend and distant cousin, who lost his life to save others. Red Letter Year is a warm, personal, unique story told from the perspective of a newlywed American Jewish couple living in postwar American occupied Germany that will touch the hearts and minds of those who remember 50 years ago and those who are curious and want to learn. Interspersed throughout the text are comments bringing RLY up to the present. Gregory Grossman, Professor Emeritus, University of California at Berkeley, writes: a telling slice of XXth century history revealed through a rich personal correspondence.; And Anatole Shub, former Moscow correspondent of the Washington Post says: evocative of the atmosphere of the Munich occupation days. I am delighted to have been working with the talented, fine sculptor and design artist, Paul Jeffries, as well as Andy Mintzer of GFI, the excellent graphic press that published my first book, A New Life Is Coming Soon, The Story of My Father, Isaac Donen.
