Mattison, Alice

In Case We're Separated

Connected Stories

€ 17.95

Spanning the length and breadth of the twentieth century, Alice Mattison's masterful "In Case We're Separated" looks at a family of Jewish immigrants in the 1920s an d 1930s and follows the urban, emotionally turbulent lives of their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren against a backdrop of political assassination, the Vietnam War, and the AIDS epidemic. Beginning with the title story, which introduces Bobbie Kaplowitz--a single mother in 1954 Brooklyn whose lover is married and whose understanding of life is changed by a broken kitchen appliance--Mattison displays her unparalleled gift for storytelling and for creating rich, multidimensional characters, a gift that has led the "Los Angeles Times" to praise her as "a writer's writer."
