Format: Hardcover
This novel traces the diaspora of eastern European immigrants to the U.S. eastern seaboard from their squalid voyage to Ellis Island to their residence in rat-infested apartments in the Bronx to their transfer to supposedly utopian agricultural communities in New Jersey. The protagonists, a family of Cohens, are distinctly drawn: a reflective, bibliophilic, non-working father; a manipulative mother who maneuvers her son into marrying the inane daughter of a wealthy businessman; the son's affairs with an American Indian prostitute and a neighboring Polish Catholic girl who becomes pregnant and dies from complications of an illegal abortion performed sub rosa by a physician; the son's criminal friends who avenge his bigoted neighbors' refusal to assist a drowning black fisherman after his canoe tipped over. As in all of Paul M. Levitt's novels, the characters are memorably drawn, convincingly motivated, and inextricably intertwined.
