Ships from and sold by EnterpriseBook. Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). Lore Segal has created well developed characters, interesting and believable in their human flaws and strengths. A minor point perhaps, but I wish the book cover had been more accurate in it's depiction of the intriguing, however obese, Carter Bayleu.
Her First American book. He’s Carter Bayoux, her first American: a middle-aged, hard-drinking black intellectual. Lore Segal’s brilliant novel is the story of their love affair-one of the funniest and saddest in modern fiction.
Hailed by the New York Times as coming closer than anyone to writing The Great American Novel, Lore Segal stuns with this passionate love story of a refugee from Hitler’s Europe and a witty, hard-drinking black intellectual For Ilka Weissnix, everything is new. Having recently arrived in the United States, she is determined to escape the immigrant communities of New York and boards a train headed west to discover the real America. She finds Carter Bayoux sitting on a stool in a bar in the desert, across from the railroad.
Lore Segal (born March 9, 1928), née Lore Groszmann, is an American novelist, translator, teacher, short story writer and author of children's books, currently living in New York City. Her book Shakespeare's Kitchen was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2008.
Lore Segal is almost a household name. She should be a household name. Born in Vienna, Segal escaped to England through the Kindertransport in 1938, at the age of ten, and came to New York in 1951 (the same year as Ilka). She has written novels and children’s books and translated fiction and poetry and taught at prestigious universities across the country.
Lore Segal’s Her First American is a quiet, unassuming, hilarious, and bold novel that may or may not be a masterpiece. It is one of the first novels to begin to truly break down the conventions of color, which have never been very soft but were surely hard and fast in 1985, when it arrived. The palpable human issues raised by color, sex, class, and religion have not had much of a place in our high-quality fiction.

By (author) Lore Segal. Her First American is very different from the books I've been reading lately and I really enjoyed it! It was a completely different take on Historical Fiction for me and I felt like it opened up a completely new door in books.
