In 1930 sixteen-year-old Marjorie Morgenstern lives with her family on the edge of Central Park. She has just come out into New York society. Her mother hopes for a glittering marriage to a good man, but Marjorie has other ideas.





Spending the summer working as a drama coach, she falls desperately in love twice over: with Noel Airman, a musician, as reckless as he is talented; and with a dream to defy her destiny as a Jewish wife and mother and become a star of the stage. Why should she settle with being another Mrs Morgenstern, if she can succeed in the heady world of show business as Marjorie Morningstar?

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Herman Wouk's most solid achievement . . . a major novel.' * Saturday Review *
'In the tradition of the great novel - spacious, abundantly peopled, shrewd, observant, humane.' * New York Herald Tribune *
Very good reading indeed. * Maxwell Geismar, New York Times *
Its locale is Central Park West, Hunter College, and West End Avenue; its characters almost all Jewish; its appeal universal. * Sunday Mirror *
This tender love story . . . sticks with me still * Washington Post *
'I read it and thought, "Oh my god, this is me."' * Scarlett Johansson *
