The Markowitz family made their first appearance several years ago in the pages of The New Yorker to the delight of thousands of readers. Since then Allegra Goodman's remarkable chronicles have grown to encompass three generations of Markowitzes: Rose, the displaced matriarch, cantankerous and lonely; her son Ed, an academic expert on terrorism with a keen but somewhat selective nose for idiocy; Henry, his younger brother, Anglophile, expatriate, sometime art dealer, with a taste for antiques and postmodern poetry; Ed's wife, Sarah, a homemaker wistful for the literary life she never led; Ed and Sarah's daughter, Miriam, a medical student who has become seriously religious. Through weddings, deaths, academic conferences, even dreams, Allegra Goodman creates a uniquely humorous, telling, and familial world of conflict, confusion, and love that many readers -- no matter what their background -- will recognize and deeply enjoy.
