An interview with Sande Boritz Berger about her forthcoming novel, The Sweetness (She Writes Press, September 2014)

New York, NY, September 2014 -- The Sweetness: A Novel by Sande Boritz Berger (She Writes Press, September 2014), is a stunning tour de force of a debut novel, inspired by true events, set during WWII, in both Vilna and Brooklyn.

"Sande Boritz Berger's impressive debut novel examines the lives of two Jewish girls, cousins, separated by an ocean and connected by brutal world events.  Ms. Berger doesn't shrink from the rough history that informs her heroines' lives, but she mitigates its harshness with a deep measure of sympathy and hope." - Hilma Wolitzer, author of An Available Man

"Sande Boritz Berger has created a rich novel about survivor guilt and innocence. The guilt is readily understood. How are people who survived the Nazis supposed to know how to behave in the face of unique evil? The Kanes (Kaninskys) endured the general experience of Jews who got out. But within that experience, they are also a family of complicated individuals, who pursue differentiated goals. It is this - their individuality, not unlike that of the Anne Frank family, that gives Ms. Berger's novel its power as a work of art." - Roger Rosenblatt, author of The Boy Detective
