Marjorie Morningstar by Herman Wouk

marjorie

Two things fuel Marjorie: she wants to be an actress and she’s in love with Noel Airman. Wouk is a master and he does an amazing job of drawing you into Marjorie’s life as a young, Jewish woman in the 1930’s. I got totally wrapped up in this book and the characters, even though their choices often infuriated me with my current-day lens.

Gwenamon says: I loved Wouk’s writing much more than the story
