9780978443580: One Foot in America

A sweet coming-of-age novel about Shloime (Sol) Kenner's first three years in America, as lived in a Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn. The protagonist, a sort of Jewish David Copperfield, takes a job in a butcher's shop to help his tradition father put bread on their table. The cast of characters includes a colorful assortment of Shloime's relatives as well as pushcart peddlers, merchants, night-school students, communists, anti-Semitic bullies, and the girls with whom he falls in love. Some of the book's most satisfying scenes take place on the boat coming over to America, while others, written in flashback, present gripping tableaux of his childhood "shtetl" in Galicia. Originally published in 1950, "One Foot in America" is a forgotten classic of Jewish immigration fiction, recommended for readers of all ages. Written with warmth, humor and a savoury Yiddish flavour; suitable for young readers. Note: Replaces 978-0-9784435-6-6.

Book Description Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 240 pages. FIrst published in 1950, One Foot in America is a long-lost gem of American Jewish immigrant fiction -- a sweet coming-of-age tale about Sol Kenners first three years in America, living with his orthodox father in a tenement flat in Brooklyn. Sol works as a butcher boy, takes evening courses, battles anti-Semitic bullies and falls in love as he tries to become a regular sport and an American. Some of the most satisfying scenes take place on the boat coming over to America, while others, written in flashback, present gripping tableaux of shtetl life in Galician Poland. . . . reads like a more Dickensian take on Henry Roths Call It Sleep . . . deserves a new audience. -- Tablet Magazine, July 2011. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9780978443580
