Read from July 02 to 08, 2012

I have to say I was somewhat disappointed. I usually enjoy books about the immigrant experience in New York, partly because I live on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. This novel is a recounting of the author's family history, centered on her great grandmother's experience in the early twentieth century, but unfortunately it is riddled with cliches about immigrants, and two-dimensional characters.
