The Angry Gods

by Wendy Brandmark
£8.99   paperback  Dewi Lewis Publishing (2003)

The Angry Gods by Wendy Brandmark New York City in the depths of the 1950s. Schoolchildren cower under their desks during atom bomb drills. McCarthy has been humiliated but the witch-hunts continue. Sonia, a thirty-year-old Jewish school teacher living at home, resists her brothers' attempts to find her a husband. For Sonia can only think of the poet she met in Harlem. He is divorced and old enough to be her father, but what outrages her family is the fact that he is 'colored'.
 
The Angry Gods is a powerful first novel about feeling outcast in America. Sonia and her black lover move between two worlds and find they belong in neither. Within this fable about racism and transgression is a funny and tender story of a mother and daughter who don't quite belong.
