Literatour: Kitty Zeldis Discusses "Not Our Kind"

With echoes of "Rules of Civility" and "The Boston Girl", Kitty Zeldis presents a compelling and thought-provoking novel set in postwar New York City, about two women - one Jewish, one a WASP - and the wholly unexpected consequences of their meeting. One rainy morning, a minor traffic accident fatefully brings together Eleanor Moskowitz and Patricia Bellamy. Their encounter seems fated: Eleanor, a teacher and recent Vassar graduate, needs a job. Patricia's difficult thirteen-year-old daughter Margaux, who is recovering from polio, needs a private tutor. Eleanor forms an instant bond with Margaux, even as she understands that the Bellamys' circle seems hostile towards Jews. "Not Our Kind" illuminates the lives of two women on the cusp of change - and asks how much our pasts can and should define our futures.
