Aug 09, 2009

it was ok
bookshelves: before-1960
Recommended for: looking for Jewish-American experience, immigrant experience, after ww2 etc
Read in January, 1995 , read count: 4

I loved the premise of this book and I really, really wanted to like it (especially because I did like her first autobiographical one) and yet, despite some very fine writing, this novel seems terribly dated and mostly just plain bored me. I attempted to read it four times before I finally made it from start to finish, and I was not happy when i did.
