Patty Friedmann had that sad childhood that is pretty much a prerequisite for a novelist. She's written seven darkly comic novels--and finally she draws on the autobiographical material that made it all possible.

Too Jewish tells a story much like the central tale of her young life: her father suffered from survivor guilt, all the while trying to make his way in a hostile society. Like Patty's father, protagonist Bernie Cooper escapes Nazi Germany, leaving his mother behind, then tries to make a life for himself with a wealthy, thoroughly assimilated Jewish girl in the Deep South. But suddenly, snobberies he couldn’t even have guessed at are set in motion. It seems Letty’s prominent Jewish parents hate him for being…too Jewish!

A bittersweet love story told in three novellas, each from the point of view of one member of the Cooper family.

Reviews: "A touching and emotional look at the story of a family forever changed by the Holocaust."

"This book, with its richness of character, scene, and plot, will provide great grist for book clubs and cries out to be made into a motion picture."
