Summary
The three-generation story of the Markowitzes and their journey into America follows their extraordinary crises and ordinary rituals, during which they assert their love, independence, and decided opinions. Reprint. NYT. LJ.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Allegra Goodman has been described as an "altogether original talent" ("Los Angeles Times") whose writing is "hilarious" ("New York Newsday"). In "The Family Markowitz", Goodman writes with charm and compassion about three generations of Markowitzes making their way in America. Among them are Rose, the cantankerous matriarch; Henry, her formerly gay but now married son who runs a Laura Ashley shop in London; her younger son Ed, a terrorism expert at Georgetown; and Ed's daughter Miriam, the medical student who, to her parents' consternation, becomes a born-again Jew. Through extraordinary crises and ordinary rituals, they assert their love and independence, and never fail to speak their minds.
