Über diesen Titel
“On Home Ground raises contemporary questions for its young readers and does so with such skill, it achieves a success far beyond an exercise in baseball and nostalgia.”-The New York Times Book Review

Since WWII, Jewish writers have not only come into their own, but have dominated the landscape of world fiction, as the course tries to demonstrate. Readings include Isaac Babel, I.B.Singer, Ida Fink, Saul Bellow, Philip Roth, Grace Paley, Teodor Borowski, A.B.Yehoshua, Amos Oz, Bernard Malamud, Nadine Gordimer, and others.
