Simone Zelitch has published three previous novels including Louisa, winner of the Goldberg Prize in Emerging Jewish Fiction. Her work was featured in National Public Radio's Hannukah Lights. Recent honors include a national endowment for the Arts Grant in Fiction.
Waveland follows the story of a wayward, brave and troubled Freedom Summer volunteer. In a story that spans three generations and challenges easy assumptions, Waveland considers: What drew Jews to the Civil Rights Movement, and what are the limitations of good intentions?
