|Anne Frank: The Book, The Life, The Afterlife by Francine Prose|
|A Jewish Book Reviews Exclusive|
Isn't it odd, asks Francine Prose, that Anne Frank, who has sold thirty million books in 65 languages, is almost never recognized for her writing? Prose goes to great lengths to make the seemingly counterintuitive case that the world has not really taken Anne Frank seriously. While much of the information she presents is not new, she marshals it in detailed, thought-provoking ways. Prose joins Philip Roth and Cynthia Ozick as one of the few writers to discuss Anne Frank's literary abilities in any depth.
