Inhaltsangabe: One of the most enlightening novels about interracial, intercultural love ever written, Her First American is the story of twenty-one-year-old Ilka Weissnix's adventures in America, having survived Hitler and the war. On a trip to the West to explore her new home, Ilka finds "her first American," Carter Bayoux, a troubled black intellectual. Through his eyes she sees America in all its hilarity and barbarity. Her First American has been hailed as a classic of American fiction. Lore Segal employs what The New York Times calls a "mixture of dollery and catastrophe" to achieve an exhilarating balance of humor and pathos.
She?s Ilka Weissnix, a young Jewish refugee from Hitler?s Europe, newly arrived in the United States. He?s Carter Bayoux, her first American: a middle-aged, hard-drinking black intellectual. Lore Segal?s brilliant novel is the story of their love affair?one of the funniest and saddest in modern fiction.
