Pogrebin’s second novel follows Zach Levy, the left-leaning son of Holocaust survivors who promises his mother that he’ll marry within the tribe. But when Zach falls for Cleo, an African-American activist grappling with her own inherited trauma, he must reconcile the family he loves with the woman who might be his soul mate.
A New York love story complicated by the legacies and modern tension of Jewish American and African-American history, "Single Jewish Male Seeking Soul Mate" explores what happens when the heart runs into the reality of politics, history, and the weight of family promises.
Pogrebin, a founding editor of Ms. Magazine, is the author of 11 books, an activist, and national lecturer. Her titles include "How to Be a Friend to a Friend Who’s Sick." She was the consulting editor on "Free to Be, You and Me."
