This anthology includes the work of numerous authors such as
Marge Piercy, Harlan Ellison, S. J. Rozan, Nancy Richler,
Moe Prager (Reed Farrel Coleman), Wendy Hornsby, Charles
Ardai, and Kenneth Wishnia.
The stories explore such issues
as the Holocaust and its long-term effects on subsequent
generations, anti-Semitism in the mid- and late-20th-century
United States, and the dark side of the Diaspora (e.g., the
decline of revolutionary fervor, the passing of generations,
the Golden Ghetto, etc.).
The stories in this collection
include â€śTrajectories,â€ť Marge Piercyâ€™s story of the
divergent paths taken by two young men from the slums of
Cleveland and Detroit in a rapidly changing postâ€“WW II
society; â€śSome You Lose,â€ť Nancy Richlerâ€™s empathetic
exploration of the emotional and psychological challenges of
trying to sum up a manâ€™s life in a eulogy; and â€śYahrzeit
Candle,â€ť Stephen Jay Schwartzâ€™s take on the subtle horrors
of the inevitable passing of time. These works include many
â€śteachable momentsâ€ť about the history of prejudice, the
contradictions of ethnic identity, and assimilation into
American society and culture.
