Marjorie Morningstar is a novel, telling the story of a young Jewish girl from New York who wants to become an actress.
Marjorie's traditional Jewish upbringing comes into conflict with her ambition, as she enters the glorious, colourful world of theatre and becomes involved with Noel Airman, a talented and intensely charismatic director.
“Definitely in the tradition of the great novel — spacious, abundantly peopled, shrewd, observant, humane.” - New York Herald Tribune
