Summary:
"Constance DeJong's long-neglected 1977 novel, Modern Love, is one thing made up of many: It is science fiction. It is a detective story. It is a historical episode in the time of the Armada and the dislocation of Sephardic Jews from Spain to an eventual location in New York's Lower East Side. It is a first-person narrator's story; Charlotte's story; and Roderigo's; and Fifi Corday's. It is a 150-year-old story about Oregon and the story of a house in Oregon. Modern Love's continuity is made of flow and motion; like an experience, it accumulates as you read, at that moment, through successive moments, right to the end."-- Provided by publisher.
