Publisher Comments:

Fiction. On New Year's Eve, 1999, our hero awaits deportation to the space colonies. But why? His two devoted friends, Moinous and Namredef, have been urgently and desperately investigating the reason for his imminent exile, and they report their findings, as unreliable as they are, to the author, Raymond Federman. Ribald farce, tragedy, history, philosophy, and science fiction — THE TWOFOLD VIBRATION touches and transforms many genres as it examines what it means to live as a survivor in the post-Holocaust era.

Synopsis:

A reprinting of the important novel by Raymond Federman.

About the Author

Raymond Federman (1928-2009) was one of the most significant fiction writers of recent generations. Federman emigrated to the US in 1947 following the deaths of his mother, father, and two sisters in the extermination camp at Auschwitz. His early experiences in the US included being a American paratrooper in Korea, a saxophone player in Detroit, and a dishwasher and student in Columbia University, before earning a PhD at UCLA and becoming one of the first American critical promoters of the work of Samuel Beckett. Federman taught literature and creative writing at SUNY-Buffalo for 35 years. His numerous experience, exploits, and linguistic inventions have become the basis for nearly than thirty books of fiction, poetry, and criticism, translated into German, Italian, French, Hungarian, Polish, Serbian, Rumanian, Hebrew, Dutch, Greek, Japanese, Chinese, and Swahili. Federman has also been the recipient of numerous awards in the US and abroad, including the American Book Award for Smiles on Washington Square. An important theorist of contemporary writing, Federman always insisted on the integration and inseparability of memory and imagination, fact and fiction. "I have to still believe," he once said in an interview, "as I often do, that one of these days around a street corner I'm going to meet my sisters."
