To Whom It May Concern by Raymond Federman

To Whom It May Concern by Raymond Federman

Annotation by S. D. Stewart

To Whom It May Concern is an eloquent surfictionist treatment of one family’s experience of the Shoah. Federman alternates between telling the story of two cousins in both past and present, and describing his own struggles with the writing of the book through first-person narration and letters written to a colleague. For those readers conditioned to conventional realism, which Federman notably eschewed, this work sits on the more approachable end of the postmodern fiction spectrum and would serve as a good entry point to that wide-ranging literary mode.
