Great Neck, by Jay Cantor. Knopf. 784 pages. $27.95. Great Neck, N.Y., is as much a state of mind as a place in Jay Cantor's massive new historical novel. At first glance, it has everything you want in a novel: a big cast of well-defined characters, a plot that weaves and spins their lives over a period of years, a melding of fictional stories with historical fact -- in this case, the social and political upheaval of the 1960s. It's a world you can plunge into. The question is, do you want to take that plunge with these particular characters?

As recently as the late 1960s, the very existence of the National Security Agency — the Fort Meade-based defense organization that gathers intelligence from foreign countries — was such a closely held secret that insiders jokingly called the place "No Such Agency. " So when a New York newspaper reporter named David Kahn stood ready to illuminate it in a big new book in 1967, the government was less than pleased. "According to my editor [at Macmillan Publishers], the NSA director flew up to New York to say it would be dangerous to national security, and unpatriotic, to publish it," says Kahn of his book "The Codebreakers," the 1,200-page blockbuster that would establish him as the world's leading expert on the history of cryptology, the art and science of making and breaking codes.

By Michael Sragow and Michael Sragow,SUN MOVIE CRITIC | June 8, 2003
Capturing the Friedmans is a nail-biter of a documentary about the dissolution of an American family. This picture puts recent fiction features like The Safety of Objects to shame with its emotional breadth and complexity. The film, which opens Friday at the Charles Theater, centers on a child-molestation scandal that swept through the well-off suburb of Great Neck, Long Island, in 1987 and '88. But the movie goes beyond an examination of a pedophiliac personality and reveals as much about community, and about fraternal, parental and marital bonds, as the richest and most incendiary works of novelists such as Philip Roth.
