Author Astrachan to Speak
at Book Fair Plan Meeting

trachan will address the
first planning meeting of
the 27th annual Jewish
Book Fair 11 a.m. Wednes-
day in the main Jewish
Community Center com-
plex. The public is invited
free of charge.
Astrachan is the author of
"Katz-Cohen," the saga of a
Jewish family whose roots
are traceable to Russia and
Poland and lives are inter-
woven in the American

erations between the start.
of World War II and the pre-
sent — lingering on com-
plex characters, following
their material and emo-
tional fluctuations and trac-
ing their continuity in the
face of inexorable stress and
Starting with the im-
migrants and their early
adjustments in America,
"Katz-Cohen" looks both
to the past and future, re-
lating the uneasy mar-
riage alliances, the diver-
sity of careers and per-
sonalities within the fam-
ily, and the moral conclu-
sions toward which each
individual struggles.
Then, as the world itself
changes, the elders de-
cline. The young ones —

Yet for all the weakening
ties of a once closely-knit


family, ancestors and de-
scendants are locked to-
gether in the endless stretch
of time. At the close of the
novel, Max — son of the first
man introduced in the vol-
ume — teaches his own
half-Jewish son the Sh'ma,
the pledge of a Jew to his
people. Through all the
agonies of life that he has
observed, despite emotional
upheaval, past death and
change, Max recognizes
that the ties of blood and be-
lief, heightened by the vis-
tas of memory, are the lines
to which men cling.
Astrachan is the author of
three other novels: "An End
to Dying," The Game of Dos-
toevsky" and "Rejoice."
Born and educated in New
York City, he now lives in
France with his wife and
son, but returns to America
