What People are Saying About This

Terry Sanford

Eli Evans combines knowledge of his religion and of his Jewish heritage into a complex and subtle mixture of insights that often intertwines autobiography with observation and informs as it inspires. He brings to his writing a unique perspective of one who has grown up Jewish...

Abba Eban

Eli Evans tells a riveting story of his journey across a decade of action and experience that took him... into a life of involvement in Jewish causes. Somewhere across the way he is gripped by Israel's ordeals. It is saga of unusual fidelities, all of them passionately felt. Eli Evan's prose is like himself — stylish, serene, reflective... The Jews of the south have found their poet laureate.


Evans has become the most eloquent and knowledgeable voice in our nation of the Jewish South... he has exemplified the finest in our Southern American civilization. Now, with The Lonely Days Were Sundays ... he reminds us anew of the Jewish Southern inheritance, its ancient intensities... This is a very Southern book, and also an immensely American one.
