Description
Connie and Stephen begin the interview discussing Stephen’s motivation for writing the book, and the historical context of the novel in the early twentieth century. They proceed to discuss the significance of the Jewish socialist movement and how Jews eventually assimilated into a capitalist society, and the significance of World War II and Hitler’s Germany to the Jewish community in the United States, before moving on to discuss Jewish assimilation in America. Connie and Stephen go on to talk about prominent Jewish figures in American history and culture. Connie closes the interview requesting an autograph for her copy of the book.
