Teitlebaum’s Window

American Literature Series
Wallace Markfield

Welcome to Brighton Beach of the 1930s and early ’40s as filtered through Simon Sloan, from youth to would-be artist-as-a-young-man at Brooklyn College to the eve of his induction into the army. Wallace Markfield perfectly captures this Jewish neighborhood—its speech, its people, its unique zaniness.

But like any masterpiece—Joyce’s Dubliners comes readily to mind—Teitlebaum’s Window both survives and expands upon its time and place. While remaining rooted in the specifics of its own world, thirty-seven years after first being published it teems with Markfield’s inventiveness, hilarity, and singular voice.
