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.

"...has the old-fashioned novelist's eye–and ear–for character, speech, and setting. . . . . Nowhere in recent fiction have the erotic sensations of childhood, boyhood, and youth been more scrupulously portrayed." - Hilton Kramer
