"A starry-eyed young beauty, Marjorie Morgenstern is nineteen years old when she leaves New York to accept the job of her dreams--working in a summer-stock company for Noel Airman, its talented and intensely charismatic director. Released from the social constraints of her traditional Jewish family, and thrown into the glorious, colorful world of theater, Marjorie finds herself entangled in a powerful affair with the man destined to become the greatest--and the most destructive--love of her life. Rich with humor and poignancy, Marjorie Morningstar is a classic love story, one that spans two continents and two decades in the life of its heroine. This unforgettable paean to youthful love and the bittersweet sorrow of a first heartbreak endures as one of Herman Wouk's most beloved creations."

This evocative portrait of the American Jewish experience illustrates the clash between the "Inside" of tradition and religion, and the "Outside" of the glittery American dream. Israel David Goodkind is a minor bureaucrat in the Nixon White House, killing empty office time by writing the story of four generations of his large, sprawling Russian-Jewish immigrant family. As he recounts his brief stint in show business, his torrid affair with a showgirl, and his encounters with a hassled and distracted President Nixon, Goodkind also witnesses historical events firsthand--the Watergate scandal, the Yom Kippur War--and eventually finds his way back to his Jewish faith

The language God talks : on science and religion by Herman Wouk( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More years ago than I care to reckon up, I met Richard Feynman." So begins the author's work on navigating the divide between science and religion. Told by Feynman that he must first learn "the language God talks", calculus, the author set in motion a lifelong inquiry. Here, in one compact volume, he draws on stories from his life as well as on key events from the 20th century to address the eternal questions of why we are here, what purpose faith serves, and how scientific fact fits into the picture. He relates wonderful conversations he's had with scientists such as Feynman, Murray Gell-Mann, Freeman Dyson, and Steven Weinberg, and brings to life such pivotal moments as the 1969 moon landing and the Challenger space shuttle disaster. --From publisher description

Fred Allen's letters by Fred Allen( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fred Allen, vaudevillian and radio star of the 1930s and 40s was a unique talent whose humor pleased a vast audience-- from housewives and traveling salesmen to university professors who compared his satire to that of Jonathan Swift and Mark Twain--one of America's most admired comedians, one of radio's most frequently censored, and a master ad-libber whose style and substance influenced fellow comics. Allen was a dedicated correspondent, typing his letters out with two fingers on his portable typewriter, and the recipients were so delighted that a great many were carefully saved. When his widow, Portland Hoffa, appealed for contributions, thousands appeared from attics and cellars nation wide. Allen's letters are presented with as few explanatory footnotes and editor's comments as possible
