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

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2,132 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

The translingual imagination by Steven G Kellman( )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 1,457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

The restless Ilan Stavans : outsider on the inside by Steven G Kellman( )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book-length study of one of the most prominent and prolific Latino academics, Ilan Stavans. He has written extensively on Latino culture, Jewish culture, dictionaries, immigration, language, Spanglish, soccer, translation, travel, selfies, and God. The Restless Ilan Stavans surveys his interests, achievements, and flaws while he is still in the midst of an extraordinarily productive career. A native of Mexico who became a U.S. citizen, he is an outsider to both the Chicano community that often resents him as an interloper and the American Jewish community that he, who grew up speaking Yiddish in Mexico City, often chides. The book examines his unlikely rise to prominence within the context of the spread of multiculturalism as a seminal principle within American culture. A self-proclaimed cosmopolitan who rejects borders, Stavans is both insider and outsider to the myriad of subjects he approaches

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

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 651 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
