Eagle at My Eyes

Glazer, Nathan. "Review of Eagle at My Eyes by Norman Katkov." Commentary, March, 1948.

Excerpt: This book begins with the story of a pogrom and ends with the line, “All right, you bastards [the Gentiles], here I come.” The hero, named Joe, tells his story in the first person, in a series of flashbacks. He is a reporter in St. Paul. Seven years ago he met a beautiful Gentile girl, of a good St. Paul family—he himself is the child of immigrant Jewish parents—and they fell decisively and unshakeably in love.
