A teenage girl goes to work for a chaotic family of Jewish immigrants, in a New York Times bestseller that's "a cause for celebration" (Ann Patchett).

In the 1930s, New York is swarming with Europe's ousted dreamers, alien families adapting to a new world. Rose Meadows unknowingly enters the lives of one such family when she answers an ad for an "assistant" to a Herr Mitwisser, the patriarch of a large household living in an obscure little neighborhood, in a remote corner of the sparse and weedy northeast Bronx. With an uncertain future, and no clear idea of her duties, Roseorphaned at eighteen and recently turned out by loverhas become a refugee among refugees.

Expelled from Berlin's elite, Professor Mitwissera researcher obsessed with an arcane religious doctrinelives with his wife, a prominent physicist now quietly going mad, and Anneliese, their willful sixteen-year-old daughter. When Anneliese's fierce longing draws a new outcast into the folda vagrant actor running from fameit's up to Rose to quell the emotional, sexual, spiritual, and societal tempests brewing within the Mitwissers unsettled home.

Hailed by the New York Times as "the most accomplished and graceful literary stylist of our time," Cynthia Ozick is a recipient of the National Book Critics Circle Award, the PEN/Nabokov Award and PEN/Malamud Award, and Heir to the Glimmering World is yet another triumph from the author of the National Book Award finalist The Puttermesser Papers and Foreign Bodies.

"A heroine to love, a story we can't let go of, gorgeous sentences, and ideas to wrestle with. I didn't just read the book, I devoured." Ann Patchett
