Description:
A major work of autobiographical fiction by a second generation Holocaust writer--funny, erotic, irreverent, and deeply moving. The Holocaust Kid belongs to the growing body of work by authors who are children of Holocaust survivors. In these interconnected stories, we follow Genia and Heniek Palovsky and their daughter in their postwar life, from the Displaced Persons camp in Germany where Zosha is born to New York City, where Heniek works in a knitting mill and Genia cultivates a circle of survivor friends, all with "Lodz-beige" hair. Zosha is a writer--by day summoning her "shlock muse in rhinestone harlequin glasses, cabana pants, and spiked heels" to write Elizabeth Taylor stories for the readers of Movie Screen and by night, writing "blood-eyed poems" about the Holocaust. Obsessed with events that took place before her birth, Zosha's entire life is touched by the Holocaust. In "The Big H," she storms the stage of during a conference to recite her poetry. She falls in love with "her own private Nazi" in "Remember 6,000,000," and then in "Shoah Casanova" with a kinky Jewish Holocaust scholar, "Generation H" explores the special bond "3G" grandson Jesse has with now elderly Heniek and Genia. This long-awaited collection reveals with unflinching honesty and wild humor, the emotional depths beneath the quest to free oneself from an ever-present past.
