(From the publisher):
This powerfully involving novel deftly explores two sides of the Jewish experience in America: the inside of family, faith, and tradition, and the outside of assimilation and advancement. Celebrated at once for its rollicking comedy and its unerring grasp of character and historic moment, Inside, Outside spans more than sixty years-from the pre-nuclear innocence of the 1920s and 1930s to the spectacle of a falling president and the explosion of war-as it sheds fresh light on the quest for identity in the clash between centuries-old tradition and pursuit of the American dream.
