Judd Steiner and Artie Straus have it all: wealth, intelligence, and the world at their feet as part of the elite, upper-crust Jewish community of 1920s Chicago. Artie is handsome, athletic, and popular, but he possesses a hidden, powerful sadistic streak and a desire to dominate. Judd is a weedy introvert, a genius who longs for a companion whom he can idolize and worship. Obsessed with Nietzsche's idea of the superhuman, both boys decide to prove that they are above the laws of man by arbitrarily picking and murdering a Jewish boy in their neighborhood

"A fine American novel--one of the best I ever read." -Ernest HemingwayThe Price of ProgressFor Chicago physician, Mitch Wilner, July 4th, 1937, began as a typical holiday--a leisurely afternoon at the beach with his wife and young children. But by the end of the day, a peaceful protest erupts in violence, as unarmed steel mill strikers are attacked by the local police force, and Mitch is inadvertently thrust into the volatile heart of the Little Steel Strike.In the days and months that follow, Mitch witnesses firsthand the aggressive strike-breaking tactics implemented by the steel mill companies, the staggering brutality of the authorities, and the blatant corruption of the local government and media. But in the unionists, Mitch discovers a bond that crosses ethnic, class, and racial boundaries, and truly embodies the spirit of the American dream.Inspired by the grim events of Chicago's historic Memorial Day Massacre, Citizens takes an unflinching look at some of the darkest days in modern U.S. labor history, and the long shadow they cast on subsequent labor movement and law. Mitch's journey to understand and change the world around him will resound as clearly today as it did when Meyer Levin first published Citizens to great acclaim in 1940.Praise: "One of the best American writers working in the realistic tradition." -Norman Mailer"[A] long, powerful, photographic novel."-Kirkus Reviews

An extraordinary classic from the most significant American Jewish writer of the 20th century, award winning author Meyer Levin. What makes a man?

To plumb Fľicit'̌s true feelings, Joe and Uriel confront each other, and themselves, in a place where ancient mysticism and modern medicine collide.
