Description
(A 2000 New York Times Notable Book) In this "sad, lovely and generous novel" (Washington Post Book World), Eliza Naumann has no reason to believe that she is anything but ordinary, particularly after her teachers place her in a class for slow learners. Her father, Saul, dotes on her older brother Aaron's rabbinical ambitions. Her mother, Miriam, seems fully absorbed by her law career. But when a spelling bee threatens to reaffirm her mediocrity, Eliza amazes everyone—she wins. Her newfound gift garners an invitation not only to the national competition, but also to her father's sacred study where a new dictionary beckons, Jewish mysticism lurks in leather tomes, and language offers a spiritual awakening. At the same time, Eliza's unexpected success sends her off-kilter family into a tailspin, and she comes to depend on her own insight to hold the family together.

"While it may be true … that every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way, the unhappiness of the Naumanns in [Bee Season] seems so particularly original and intriguing that you almost want the author to go on denying the family members the fulfillment they so ardently seek."—NYTimes
