Hortense Calisher conjures up the rich and varied texture of her childhood and her Southern Jewish family. Woven from observation, reflection and memory, the book moves back and forth through a lifetime, chronicling her relationship with her Southern roots and particularly her "kissing cousin" Katie Pyle. This book is an homage to memory, to the tenacious love that lasts a lifetime, and to the richness of language. A memoir gently nostalgic, quietly humorous, and unforgettably haunting, Kissing Cousins is a masterpiece of reminiscence by one of America's most eloquent writers. DJ has a 1/2" tear at the top, pretty invisible. Dust jacket is in a mylar cover. ; Octavo (standard book size); 118 pages
