Disappointing. I didn't make it past the first chapter, which was shaping up as primarily autobiographical rather than an investigation of Moses or Jacobs. While I can appreciate the author's justification for this--that her own story was representative of the city's--it wasn't what I was hoping for when I picked this up.
