Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "With its hint of passion and irony, the title of David Chalmers' book aptly captures the complexities of his study. Beautifully written, it is more than a recitation of the actors and events of the 1960s. It helps us to make sense of the decade."--Dan T. Carter, Emory University.

Inhaltsangabe: Sol Nazerman survived the Holocaust. His wife and children did not -he witnessed their murder in a concentration camp. He is now a Harlem pawnbroker, emotionally dead and indifferent to the desperation around him, running his shop as a front for a racketeer. Made into an Academy Award-winning film starring Rod Steiger, this is one of the most moving pieces in modern fiction.
Über den Autor: Edward Lewis Wallant (1926-1962) was an American writer. During his life he published the novels The Human Season (1960) and The Pawnbroker (1961). Wallant - a devoted family man with much potential - died of an aneurysm at the age of 36. Two of his novels were published posthumously - The Tenants of Moonbloom (1963) and The Children at the Gate (1964). Wallant began to write professionally aged thirty. He had served in the Second World War, and had attended art school in New York. He had spent some time as an advertising art director in the city. Wallant has an elegant and fluid writing style - his books are written in rich, free-flowing prose. Wallant has been compared to other Jewish American writers such as Saul Bellow and Phillip Roth. He was survived by his wife Joyce, who passed away in 1991; is survived by his son Scott, daughters Leslie and Kim, grandchildren Nina, Steve, Nora, Eddie, Jon, Esme and Ruthie.
