10 Ansay, A. Manette VINEGAR HILL
Avon 1998 0380730138 / 9780380730131 Paperback VG 
Light General Wear. Interior Clean and bright. Quite a decent copy.; Oprah's Book Club; 0.9 x 7.4 x 5.2 Inches; 256 pages; In a stark, troubling, yet ultimately triumphant celebration of self-determination, award-winning author A. Manette Ansay re-creates a stifling world of guilty and pain, and the tormented souls who inhabit it. It is 1972 when circumstance carries Ellen Grier and her family back to Holly's Field, Wisconsin. Dutifully accompanying her newly unemployed husband, Ellen has brought her two children into the home of her in-laws on Vinegar Hill--a loveless house suffused with the settling dust of bitterness and routine--where calculated cruelty is a way of life preserved and perpetuated in the service of a rigid, exacting and angry God. Behind a facade of false piety, there are sins and secrets in this place that could crush a vibrant young woman's passionate spirit. And here Ellen must find the straight to endure, change, and grow in the all-pervading darkness that threatens to destroy everything she is and everyone she loves.; LITERATE

12 Appelfeld, Aharon THE AGE OF WONDERS
David R Godine Pub 1981 0879234024 / 9780879234027 Hardcover VG/VG 
Light General Wear. Interior Clean and bright. Quite a decent copy.; 1.26 x 7.72 x 4.88 Inches; 270 pages; The secure world of a well-established and apparently perfectly assimilated Jewish writer living in an Austrian town before World War II, disintegrates under the force of political and social realities that daily sanctify the old and endemic Austrian anti-Semitism. We learn what we learn through Bruno, the thirteen-year-old son of the family, whose spare and uninflected account discloses the slow onset of disaster. His father, a successful Austrian intellectual, refuses the implications of what s happening and embraces the humiliating routines of Jewish self-hatred. To the vicious attacks on his writing and character, he adds his own voice until, with nothing left not faith, not family, not dignity he disappears. Thirty years later, the war long over, Bruno, at a low point in a childless marriage, responds to ambiguously positive inquiries about his father s work, and travels from his home in Jerusalem to the Austrian town of his childhood. What he encounters in that town, now clean of Jews, enables him to face his own profound losses, and, in some measure, redeem the sins of his father.; LITERATE

13 Appelfeld, Aron TO THE LAND OF THE CATTAILS
Weidenfeld & Nicolson 1986 1555840078 / 9781555840075 Hardcover VG/VG 
Light General Wear. Interior Clean and bright. Quite a decent copy.; 0.9 x 8.2 x 5.8 Inches; 148 pages; At 17, Toni left her native Bukovina, "the land of the cattails," running off with a man to live in Vienna, where she shed her Jewishness. Now, at 34, she and her teenage son, Rudi, return home to try to locate her long-lost parents and reclaim her heritage for her half-Jewish son. However, the year is 1938 and, although Appelfeld never explicitly mentions Nazism or even anti-Semitism, it is clear that Toni and Rudi are en route to destruction. Delayed on their journey by the pleasures they find at the hotels where they stay--and young Rudi's explorations of alcohol and sex--they finally arrive at the village. Toni is immediately taken away along with the other villagers, and Rudi embraces his mother's religion just before it is clear that he too will be a victim. As he does in all his fiction, Appelfeld writes vividly and with passion about the fate of the Jews, and about what he sees as their fatalistic inability to confront the facts in the face of annihilation.; LITERATE
