A new 30th Anniversary paperback edition of an award-winning classic.Winner of the National Book Award, 1976World of Our Fathers traces the story of Eastern Europe's Jews to America over four decades. Beginning in the 1880s, it offers a rich portrayal of the East European Jewish experience in New York, and shows how the immigrant generation tried to maintain their Yiddish culture while becoming American. It is essential reading for those interested in understanding why these forebears to many of today's American Jews made the decision to leave their homelands, the challenges these new Jewish Americans faced, and how they experienced every aspect of immigrant life in the early part of the twentieth century.This invaluable contribution to Jewish literature and culture is now back in print in a new paperback edition, which includes a new foreword by noted author and literary critic Morris Dickstein.

Dug this out of my library in Sweden - one of those books I really WANT to read but still have not done so. My father's side of the family came from Kiev to NY in the beginning of the 1900s, so this ought to be sort of a story of my great grandfather's and his family's experiences.
