  • "From Pulitzer Prize--winning American author Herman Wouk, Inside, Outside is a rich and compelling story--beautifully focused and often hilarious... Israel David Goodkind is a minor bureaucrat in the Nixon White House, killing empty office time by writing the story of four generations of his large, sprawling Russian-Jewish immigrant family. As he recounts his brief stint in show business, his torrid affair with a showgirl, and his encounters with a hassled and distracted President Nixon, Goodkind also witnesses historical events firsthand--the Watergate scandal, the Yom Kippur War--and eventually finds his way back to his Jewish faith. Combining Wouk's wildly funny streak with deeply religious passages--and some intensely intimate romantic scenes rare in this reticent author's work-- Inside, Outside is a striking departure from the traditional storytelling mode in which the author has won international fame; and yet it may be the most truly characteristic of all his writings. Written in the first person in a free-form, often ribald style, playing antic tricks with time, it offers all the passion, depth, historical detail, and humor that has made Wouk a bestselling author around the world."@en
  • "This evocative portrait of the American Jewish experience illustrates the clash between the "Inside" of tradition and religion, and the "Outside" of the glittery American dream."
