Jennifer Gilmore's work has appeared in several magazines and journals, but Golden Country is her debut novel, and an auspicious one it is. Gilmore's story follows the lives of three immigrants from the 1920s to the '60s in New York: Joseph Brodsky, a door-to-door salesman; Seymour, a salesman who trades in his cases for guns and glamour; and Frances, unsinkable, not too beautiful, but determined to know success. Their lives are intertwined, partly by proximity when they were young, and, when the novel opens, by the engagement of Joseph's daughter, Miriam, and Seymour's son, David. These three people live the story of America at that time: the impact of Kristallnacht and the camps on the Jewish population, World War II, depression and new prosperity, airplane travel, and television. It's a time of enormous change and growth, great sadness, and undreamed of wealth. Joseph's brother, Solomon, leaves the Brooklyn neighborhood and becomes "The Terrier," a notorious gangster, much to the shame and heartbreak of his family. One of the recurring metaphors of the book is cleaning--Joseph's wife Esther is compulsive about cleaning her house and Joseph, who sells cleaning supplies, thinks about cleaning up the world, or at least that part of it that his brother has sullied. Joseph eventually invents Essoil, named for Esther, which is a dual-purpose cleanser that makes his fortune. He also conceives of the idea of advertising his product on television, and Frances is contemporary,domestic life,fiction,genre fiction,historical,jewish american,literary,literature and fiction,women's fiction Literature & Fiction, Mariner Books
