Foreign Bodies - Cynthia Ozick

The eleventh work of fiction by the award-winning Cynthia Ozick is a story of young Americans in Paris in the 1950s. They’re there not so much for love, adventure, and the Bohemian life (though they find some of this), but to escape their domineering father. Having driven his children away, and his wife crazy, he orders his sister to put his family together again. And she does—but in her way, not his. FOREIGN BODIES (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $26), while an homage to Henry James’s The Ambassadors, is quintessential Ozick. Her writing is polished, her plotting meticulously crafted, and her sharp wit and deft intellect shine throughout.
