Growing Up Rich' or Jewish?

The startling change in
the life of a 13-year-old child
after the death of her weal-
thy parents, and the dark
contrasts between wealthy,
assimilated German Jews
and a warm, middle class
Jewish family make for ex-
cellent, if sometimes heavy
reading in Anne Bernays'
new novel, "Growing Up
Rich" (Little, Brown and
Co.).
The book is the author's
fifth novel in 20 years of
writing, and area residents
will get a chance to meet her
at the 24th annual Jewish
Book Fair at the main Jew-
ish Community Center on
Nov. 10. The topic of her 10
a.m. lecture is "Mothers and
Daughters."
Mrs. Bernays' "Growing
Up Rich" is a fine mixture
of several themes: the be-
nign-neglect attitude of a
wealthy family towards its
children, the attitude of
rich, assimilated German
Jews towards other Jews,
lower classes and gentiles,
the adolescence of a young
girl, and of course the young
girl's assimilation into a
new life style.

ANNE BERNAYS

"There's no use trying to
convince her I ought to
switch to another school. Do
people jump around from
one religion to another? I
had figured out what my
mother was trying to tell me
even though she would have
died rather than tell it tome
straight:
"A Jewish girl at the See-
ley School has an unrivaled
opportunity to mix with the
`creme de la creme,' the
families so socially secure
that their names don't ap-
pear in the papers unless
one of their black sheep re-
lations happens to be run-
ning for public office.

Mrs. Bernays intri-
cately weaves her many
themes around Sally
Stern, and her 6-year-old
half-brother, Rodger. Or-
phaned by an airplace
crash, the two children
leave the wealth of New
York's Upper East Side for
Brookline, Mass., because
of the perplexing choice of
Sally's Christian step-
father.

"It was Mummy's goal
to have me so homogenized
and absorbed into the
bland cereal of American
white Protestant culture
that you could not tell me
apart from a little Vander-
bilt or a medium-sized
Whitney. Until I went to
live with Sam and Judy
London I thought all Jews
wanted to be mistaken far
gentiles."

The first portion of Mrs.
Bernays' book paints a
dreadful picture of over-
abundant wealth, snobbery,
assimilation. For example:

And the London house
certainly was a change for

Albert Rosenblum. Each of
the agencies cited were con-
tacted in advance and have
approved their listing on the
flyer.
Yiddish translations of
the information were pro-
vided by Dr. Shmarya
Kleinman. Rabbi Israel
Rockove, executive director
of the Hebrew Benevolent
Society, edited the transla-
tions and provided a type-
written version.

By

the Stern children, as they
went from the orderly hum
of servants and chauffeurs
to the atmosphere of Jewish
Brookline and its madden-
ing disarray of the every-
day world.
Mrs. Bernays focuses on
the family — certainly a
Jewish family and its weal-
thy New York counterpart
— and while she includes
her many contrasts between
assimilation and Jewish-
ness, middle class and weal-
thy, her major story is the
growth of a teen-age girl in
learning to sort out the con-
flicting values which have
become a part of her life.
"Growing Up Rich" is a
masterful novel, showing a
masterful touch at display-
ing two different worlds and
a child's rocky adjustment
to them.

1. You may stimulate
the growth of addition-
al hairs around the one
you pull out.
2. You may cause suc-
cessive generations of
hair from the abused
follicle to grow coarser,
longer, darker.
3. You may make event-
ual permanent removal
slower and costlier by
pulling the root and fol-
licle out of place.

Such risks are need-
less now that Air-cooled
Jet Stream Electrolysis
is available to you. This
is the first method of
permanent hair remov-
al with everything tct*
commend it. Air-cooled
Jet Stream is faster,
more comfortable.
Electrolysis is the only
medically approved
method to remove hair
permanently.
