Was interesting to read this first collection of Jewish-American stories, after reading the 1992-one, as I was able to notice the change of topics and shift of focus. Although not all the story are equal in terms of literary quality, there is a lot of valuable sociological and anthropological information.
I bought a used copy of this book simply to read Howe's famous introduction. Hoping to write more about that sometime soon. Meantime, glad to have the anthology to pick through in due course. So many books! So little time! (So say we all!)
Irving Howe was an American literary and social critic and a prominent figure of the Democratic Socialists of America.More about Irving Howe...
