Redemption : the life of Henry Roth by Steven G Kellman( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Roth (1906-1995), author of the great immigrant novel Call It Sleep, is one of the giants of American literature. After completing his first book in 1934, Roth lapsed into a legendary six-decade silence, only to reemerge with Mercy of a Rude Stream, hailed as "a landmark of the American literary century." In following Roth's tortured life from his childhood on the Jewish Lower East Side to his twilight years in New Mexico, literary critic Kellman has uncovered FBI files, spoken with family members and friends, and gained access to the tape in which Roth discussed the long-buried incest of his youth. Redemption is the saga of a great writer doomed to a life of psychological torment, but saved in the end by his search for deliverance.--From publisher description

The translingual imagination by Steven G Kellman( Book )

"It is difficult to write well even in one language. Yet a rich body of translingual literature - by authors who write in more than one language or in a language other than their primary one - exists, The Translingual Imagination is a pioneering study of the phenomenon." "Opening with an overview of this vast subject, Steven G. Kellman then looks at the differences between ambilinguals - those who write authoritatively in more than one language - and monolingual translinguals - those who write in only one language but not their native one."--Jacket

"Leslie Fiedler and American Culture marks the start of its subject's ninth decade. The first such collection devoted entirely to Fiedler, it gathers together spirited responses to his work by scholars, critics, and poets."--Jacket

An American in the making, the life story of an immigrant by M. E Ravage( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the turn of the twentieth century, M.E. Ravage set off in steerage for America, one of almost two million Jews who, like millions of others from eastern and southern Europe, were lured by tales of worldly success. Seventeen years after arriving on Ellis Island, Ravage had mastered a new language, found success in college, and engagingly penned in English this vivid account of the ordeals and pleasures of departure and assimilation. Steven G. Kellman brings Ravage's story to life again in this new edition, providing a brief biography and introduction that place the memoir within historical and literary contexts. An American in the Making contributes to a broader understanding of the global notion of "America" and remains timely, especially in an era when massive immigration, now from Latin America and Asia, challenges ideas of national identity."--Publisher's website
