about this book

Allegra Goodman's critically acclaimed collection of stories explores the lives of richly drawn characters caught between their own longings and the expectations of family and community-for example, the character Cecil Birnbaum in the story "Variant Text" who is an Oxford househusband, Shavian Scholar, and an adamantly observant Jew who remains agnostic. In 12 stories Total Immersion chronicles the stresses and ironies of contemporary men and women with startling knowledge and self-confidence.
