About the Author

Rhoda Lerman's highly praised and award-winning novels "melded history with contemporaneity, mythology with social criticism, feminism with a Jewish sensibility and snark with seriousness" (Bruce Weber, the New York Times). Dubbed the "female Philip Roth" and compared favorably with Kafka, Singer, Malamud, and Graves, Lerman's novels include the Pulitzer Prize nominated Call Me Ishtar, The Girl That He Marries, The Book of the Night, God's Ear, Animal Acts, and Eleanor, her extensively researched historical fiction about First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. Lerman died in 2015.


"Reality is canted through Lerman's slyly irreverent sensibility, one of the most idiosyncratic in contemporary prose."--Village Voice
"The very opposite of a minimalist, Lerman proves herself mistress not only of side-splitting one-liners but also of pregnant perception about faith and virtue."--Publishers Weekly
"Lerman's is a unique voice--wildly funny, achingly spiritual, profoundly Jewish and feminist at the same time."--The New York Times Book Review
"Solimeos is an astonishing novel of epic sweep in which The Third Reich is reborn in the forests of the Amazon--singular in its exquisitely detailed, bold re-imagining of the aftermath of the darkest chapter in twentieth century history. The most astonishing and original book I've read in years, this tale of adventure and intrigue is as horrifying and shocking as it is sublime and beautiful."--Jay Neugeboren, author of The Stolen Jew
"Rhoda Lerman is a find. Go out and find her."--New York Times
"Solimeos is captivating...Rhoda Lerman's final novel traces an intercontinental Nazi plot, breathtaking danger, and twisted loyalties. Meanwhile, interwoven throughout the story are poignant glimpses of rare beauty and heartfelt passion. Solimeos is an irresistible read--a genuine page-turner."--Lela Gilbert, author of Saturday People, Sunday People
