— Jay Neugeboren, interviewed by Kirkus Reviews about his new novel, The Other Side of the World
“Mine is a most peaceable disposition. My wishes are: a humble dwelling with a thatched roof, but a good bed, good food, milk and butter of the freshest, flowers at my window, and a few fine tall trees before my door; and if God wants to make my happiness complete, he will grant me the joy of seeing some six or seven of my enemies hanging from those trees. Before death I shall, moved in my heart, forgive them all the wrong they did to me in their lifetimes. One must, it is true, forgive one’s enemies—but not before they have been hanged.”
—Heinrich Heine, Thoughts and Ideas
The epigraph from Jay Neugeboren’s newest novel, The Other Side of the World, out later this month.

Neugeboren presents a meditation on life, love, art and family relationships that’s reminiscent of the best of John Updike.
