In this follow-up to "Bech: A Book, " Henry Bech, the priapic,
peripatetic, and unproductive Jewish American novelist, returns
with seven more chapters from his mock-heroic life. He turns fifty
in a confusing blend of civic and erotic circumstances while
publicizing himself in Australia and Canada. He marries a "shiksa"
and travels with her to Israel, where she falls in love with the
land, and to Scotland, where "he" does. And--sweating buckets
thinking big minting miracles "--"he writes an ingeniously tawdry
bestseller. Bech's aesthetic and moral embarrassments reveal acid
truths about both his trade and our times.
