, xiii, 223pp., very good dust-jacket, light wear, very good white half-cloth with cream colored boards. SIGNED simply Anita Diamant on title page Collection of revised columns by Diamant from the time before her success as a novelist. Many deal with Jewish themes: holidays, the Yom HaShoah observance (she is the daughter of survivors), the Rabbi, learning in Judaism, the difficulties of Hebrew, "liberal piety". - "The culinary history of the Jews can be read as a story of triumphant assimilation. The ongoing metabolization of customs, languages, fashions, fruits, nuts, and spices around the world did not give us a single, unified Jewish culture. Instead, it kept us busy creating new recipes and menus for celebrations as old as Passover, as new as the Fourth of July" (137). ISBN 0743246160. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 40333
Inhaltsangabe: Following the enormous success of her two bestselling novels, "The Red Tent" and "Good Harbor," award-winning author Anita Diamant delivers a book of intimate reflections on the milestones, revelations, and balancing acts of life as a wife, mother, friend, and member of a religious community.
Before "The Red Tent," before "Good Harbor," before and during six books on contemporary Jewish life, Anita Diamant was a columnist. Over the course of two decades, she wrote essays about friendship and family, work and religion, ultimately creating something of a public diary reflecting the shape and evolution of her life -- as well as the trends of her generation.
"Pitching My Tent" collects the finest of these essays, all freshly revised, updated, and enriched with new material, forming a cohesive and compelling narrative. Organized into six parts, the shape of the book reflects the general shape of adult life, chronicling its emotional and practical milestones. There are sections on marriage and the nature of family ("Love, Marriage, Baby Carriage"); on the ties that bind mother and child ("My One and Only"); on the demands and rewards of friendship ("The Good Ship"); on the challenges of balancing Jewish and secular calendars ("Time Wise"); on midlife ("In the Middle"); and on what it means to embrace Judaism in today's culture ("Home for the Soul").
Über den Autor: Personal without being confessional, devotional but also genuinely funny, Pitching My Tent displays the wit, warmth, honesty, and wisdom that have delighted Diamant's readers for decades. Anita Diamant, the author of six books about contemporary Jewish life and two novels, is a prizewinning journalist whose work has appeared regularly in The Boston Globe Magazine and Parenting. The Red Tent, her first novel, was named Book Sense Book of the Year. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband.
