Two On the Aisle: A Judaic American Tale of Romance and Creative Dreams
Jewish authors -- United States, Nathan Horowitz (1908-1994), Dorothy Horowitz (1917-1990)
Two on the Aisle: A Judaic American Tale of Romance and Creative Dreams, is a biography of the author's parents, Nathan and Dorothy Horowitz, as well as a twentieth century American cultural history. The story describes how two offspring of Eastern European immigrants combined a struggle for material security with literary efforts that blended Yiddish-flavored humor, social compassion, religious devotion, and secular concerns with piercing meditations on life's disappointments and fragility. While sampling fragments of the couple's three-act play that enjoyed a brief run off-Broadway in the 1950s and excerpts from published poetry, short stories, sketches, and essays, Two on the Aisle draws on a vast archive of correspondence, journal entries, and unpublished work to offer distinctive insights into modern Jewish and American cultural identity.
