By Alicia Freilich de Segal, Joan Friedman

Cl?per is a singular of Venezuelan Jewish existence initially released in Spanish in 1987. Narrated through a father, a first-generation emigrant from japanese Europe, and his daughter, a second-generation Jewish Venezuelan, it tells a vintage tale of the twentieth-century Jewish event, of previous international struggles for fiscal survival and New international struggles for reputation and independence. The novel's attraction lies within the author's luck in rendering assorted voices convincingly, and in so doing representing a variety of immigrant and postimmigrant studies. "Cl?per" is a transliteration of a Yiddish notice for peddler; it's how the daddy humbly describes himself, or, as a "knower of not anything, a schlepper, a knocker on doors." His decided trudge via existence contrasts with the emotional and cultural doubts of his confident daughter coming of age in the course of the time of radical pleasure that swept via collage campuses within the Sixties, making this tale not just a well-recognized one in every of Jewish existence but in addition of the common intergenerational contests among father or mother and baby.
