Inhaltsangabe: These vibrant short stories are about the lives of Jewish families in New York in the mid-twentieth century. But, in Kaplans vision, everyday life, with its complexity, disorder, and comic subtleties can never obscure a deeper reality. Her sharp-eyed, quirky children and adults are haunted by history, both individual and collective. About this book, Cynthia Ozick said, Johanna Kaplans first book of stories blissfully renews character as fictions chief adventure. Other Peoples Lives is the source of every intelligent joy, and restores to reading its old flavor of visits busy with crisis, comedy, wisdom, dreaming, irony, redemption."Other Peoples Lives won the Jewish Book Award, and the Ernest Hemingway-PEN Prize in 1976.
