Description
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.
