Francine Prose: Women on the Move

Hosted By: Streicker Center Temple Emanu-El NYC

In this age of mis- and dis-information, bestselling author Francine Prose offers up a dazzling new novel set in the last age of vicious American partisanship, scapegoating and overt political deceit.

At the height of the Red Scare, a newly minted Jewish Harvard grad finds himself caught between his ambition to trade the mores of his liberal Brooklyn parents for the high-flying goyish world and the conscience he didn’t quite know he’d inherited.

How could a setup like that possibly lead to a rollicking novel complete with Ethel Rosenberg remade into a nymphomaniacal communist Mata Hari and a dollop of sideways #MeToo commentary on sexual predation?

It probably couldn’t have if The Vixen had been written by a less deft storyteller and author.
