Alan Kaufman's latest novel, The Berlin Woman, is an explosive political romance about a love affair between two children of Holocaust Survivors, set against the rising tide of anti-Semitism.
Lena is a married, chronically infidelitous Berlin-based European writer, devoted only to gratifying her ambitions and hard-driving libido. Nathan is a footloose womanizing American author, unable to produce the big novel for which he's been contracted. When both writers meet in the Alps, they fall into a mad kind of addictive love, chasing each other selfishly, sexually and even digitally across Europe and America, turning their affair into a high-stakes reckless game of jealousy, rivaling ambitions, gender conflict, political combat and artistic outrage.
Alan Kaufman is an American writer, memoirist and poet. He is the author of the memoirs Jew Boy and Drunken Angel, and the novel Matches, and is listed as editor of The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry. Kaufman is also listed as co-editor of The Outlaw Bible of American Literature, alongside Barney Rosset and Neil Ortenberg.
