About this title

Synopsis:

Washington Post Best Books of 2005.
Philadelphia Inquirer Top 10 Fiction Pick, Fall 2005
At age 67, Artie Rubin finds his world shaken to its foundation by events he cannot control. His tale his both universal and unique; it is the story of the end of things and their beginnings, of friends and family, of connections lost and of the endurance of love. The Days of Awe is a breathtaking call to living.
"[Nissenson] more than holds his own in the arena of gritty, all-too-present-day realism, brilliantly conveying his characters' anxiety and suffering, their conflicting ideas, emotions and beliefs, and the love for one another that makes them so vulnerable but also lends enduring value to their menaced lives."-"Wall Street Journal"
"Solid character writing and attention to the details of daily life make the September 11 material well motivated; as characters continue to worry, kibitz, philosophize and complain, one feels that they have a real sense of the stakes."-"Publishers Weekly"
"A moving, thought-provoking exploration of coming to grips with mortality."-"Booklist"
"I just finished The Days of Awe. I am too moved to move. (Even this pen.) An amazing novel. It is as if we are eavesdropping on life." -Cynthia Ozick

From the Back Cover:

At age 67, Artie Rubin finds his world shaken to its foundation by events he cannot control. His tale is both universal and unique; it is the story of the end of things and their beginnings, of friends and family, of connections lost and of the endurance of love. The Days of Awe is a breathtaking call to living.
?The Days of Awe is a great Awakening elegy for all our lives even as we live them.?
-Johanna Kaplan, author of O My America
?[Nissenson] more than holds his own in the arena of gritty, all-too-present-day realism, brilliantly conveying his characters? anxiety and suffering, their conflicting ideas, emotions and beliefs, and the love for one another that makes them so vulnerable but also lends enduring value to their menaced lives.?
-Wall Street Journal
?If...you believe that at their best, novels should be transformative, should rip the dusty curtains from our everyday vision and reveal the reality of our existence; if you don?t mind being terrorized by a narrative if it takes you to a greater understanding of what it means to be alive on this earth; if you?re willing to take this ride with Hugh Nissenson, then you?re not in for a treat exactly-that would be the wrong word-but you?ll be looking at a different world when you finish his pages.?
-Carolyn See, Washington Post
