Returning to the milieu of CALL IT SLEEP, Jewish Harlem at the beginning of the century, Roth introduces us to 14 year-old Ira Stigman and his extended family. It is 1914 and the family must contend with the impact of war on themselves and their homelands. Ira has other issues - sexuality, the racism of his peers, a bullying and failed father and the search for his own identity ...... he was still able to type, his hands still able to stand the impact of the keys of his Olivetti manual typewriter. Such was the case today: The yellow secondcopy page waiting for him to transcribe it to disk began: This is Tuesday, April 3, 1979.
