Book Description:

Totempole is Sanford Friedman's radical coming-of-age novel, featuring Stephen Wolfe, a young Jewish boy growing up in New York City and its environs during the  Depression and war years.  In eight discrete chapters, which trace Stephen's evolution from a two-year-old boy to a twenty-four-year-old man.  Friedman describes with psychological acuity and great empathy Stephen's intellectual, moral, and sexual maturation.  Taught to abhor his body for the sake of his soul, Stephen finds salvation in the eventual unification of the two, the recognition that body and soul should not be partitioned but treated as one being, once complete man.
