"De?nitely in the tradition of the great novel - spacious, abundantly peopled, shrewd, observant, humane." -- New York Herald Tribune
A starry-eyed young beauty, Marjorie Morgenstern is nineteen years old when she leaves New York to accept the job of her dreams--working in a summer-stock company for Noel Airman, its talented and intensely charismatic director. Released from the social constraints of her traditional Jewish family, and thrown into the glorious, colorful world of theater, Marjorie ?nds herself entangled in a powerful affair with the man destined to become the greatest -- and the most destructive -- love of her life.
Rich with humor and poignancy, Marjorie Morningstar is a classic love story, one that spans two continents and two decades in the life of its heroine. An unforgettable tale, this paean to youthful love and the bittersweet sorrow of a ?rst heartbreak endures as one of Herman Wouk's most beloved creations.
"Its locale is Central Park West, Hunter College, and West End Avenue; its characters almost all Jewish; its appeal universal." -- Sidney Field, Sunday Mirror
"Very good reading indeed." -- Maxwell Geismar, New York Times
