  • About the Edition

    Spanning the first half of the twentieth century, Golden Country brings to life the intertwining stories of three Jewish immigrants seeking their fortunes--the handsome and ambitious Seymour, a salesman-turned-gangster-turned-Broadway-producer; the gentle and pragmatic Joseph, a door-to-door salesman who is driven to invent a cleanser effective enough to wipe away the shame of his brother"s mob connections; and the irresistible Frances Gold, who grows up in Brooklyn, stars in Seymour"s first show, and marries the man who invents television. Their three families, though inextricably connected for years, are brought together for the first time by the engagement of Seymour"s son and Joseph"s daughter. David and Miriam"s marriage must endure the inheritance of not only their parents" wealth but also the burdens of their past. As Gilmore"s characters witness and shape history, they come to embody America"s greatness, as well as its greatest imperfections.--From publisher description.

    The Golden Age of mysteries is usually considered the s and s, although the style was written at least as early as ; the term can also refer to later-written mysteries which follow the same formulas and style. Certain conventions and clichés were established that limited any surprises.   The dream about the Golden Country dream is a recurring dream. The Golden Country is his forever place; it's perfect. The appearance of the girl marks something new in the dream. The fact that she removes her clothes is intoxicating, and yet not for sexual reasons, but rather for her defiance of the party.
