"Last Performance at the Odeon", Carol Susan Nathanson

Literary Nonfiction. Jewish Studies. "Sometimes it takes years and years to see a pattern, but watch a tin of paint when it falls and spreads unmercifully across the carpet. You can't stop it. The stain just gets bigger and bigger and bigger, like secrets, passed down from generation to generation. Each family fiddles with the story, changes a fact here and there, tries to protect itself. From what—shame. We have to stop it." LAST PERFORMANCE AT THE ODEON is an evocative and original autobiographical prose poem, rich in insights into Anglo- Jewish life from the late nineteenth century to the present day, supported by family-historical documents and photographs.
