In 1955, Henry Enright is a stranger in a strange town. The painfully shy, naïve teenager has relocated with his family from Boston to a quiet rural community, and Henry tries not to remember the thrashing he received a few years earlier on a cold winter’s day in the shadow of St. Andrew’s Church—a beating that would leave him even more determined to find acceptance—no matter what the personal cost. In a time when rock and roll has just started to play from the jukeboxes and the sexual revolution is on the rise, Henry, determined to remake his image and be accepted by his peers, begins to make a dramatic transformation. With only his wits to guide him in his rebellion against authority and religious hypocrisy, Henry has no idea how devastating the consequences of his revolt against the world around him will be. Both poignant and heart-wrenching, The Obsession of Henry Enright captures the mood of an era through the eyes of a misguided soul seeking to know and be known.

The WWII reporter and “most significant American Jewish writer of his time” recounts his decades-long battle to stage Anne Frank’s diaries (Los Angeles Times). As a war correspondent in Europe during World War II, Meyer Levin was among the first to report on the horrors of Nazi occupation. Also a successful novelist, he desperately wanted to bear witness to what he saw in literary form. Then, in 1951, he read The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank. It was precisely the voice he had been searching for—and he became determined to bring Anne’s story to America as a Broadway play. The Obsession is Levin’s candid account of this ill-fated project and the mania to see it through that gripped him for twenty years. Though Levin began writing his adaptation with the support of Anne’s father, Otto, he was eventually replaced with non-Jewish writers. Refusing to let Anne’s story be sanitized, Levin fought for his version in and out of courtrooms in a protracted battle that nearly destroyed both his family and his career. In this extraordinary memoir, Levin explores the nature of Jewishness, the price of assimilation, the writer’s obligation to himself and to his subject, and the search for identity and purpose.

"Lawrence Graver's book is a precise and generous account of dreadful obsession, in which deep issues are reduced by paranoia into misery all around--and work for many lawyers. It's sad, true to my knowledge of Meyer Levin and others enmeshed in the history--infinitely sad."--Herbert Gold, author of Fathers "Beautifully and poignantly told, this story holds a mirror up to American Jewry's own coming to terms with the Holocaust. It is by turns captivating and heartbreaking, the story of both Levin's obsession and his search for Jewish and American identity after the Holocaust. In this literary history, Lawrence Graver also reanimates the diary itself, returning it to the time and place from which it was torn fifty years ago."--James Young, author of Writing and Re-writing the Holocaust and TheTexture of Memory "A gripping account, easy to read in one or two sittings, hard to put down. The balance between sympathy for Levin and criticism of his mounting obsession is exquisitely established and beautifully maintained, culminating in remarkable insight."--Morris Dickstein, author of Gates of Eden "Beyond Anne Frank is so beautiful and thoughtfully written that I really couldn't put it down. Diane Wolf's voice is human and humanistic, without glossing over any painful realities. She probes the subject from an impressive array of angles, considering a wide variety of types of experiences. This book is extraordinarily fine and I enthusiastically recommend it."--Lynn Davidman, author of Motherloss

Yesterday I learned a painful lesson not to trust the prince of Cape Hill. Today I’ll destroy his carefully laid plans and show him just how badly he’s already lost. All the money in the world won’t be able to stop me. The Obsession is the second book of the Filthy Rich Americans trilogy and should be read following The Initiation.
