" "In the first volume of the sequence of six, we are introduced to young Ira Stigman and his dazzlingly invoked immigrant world of New York's Jewish Harlem. It is 1914 and use of the outbreak of war is the first of many events to impinge on Ira's life and that of his extended family. Here is a boy struggling with the racism of his peers, with the horrifying emergence of sexuality, with his raging and unpredictable father, and with the world outside -- work, camaraderie, Prohibition, the expectations of manhood. Ira's rights of passage are a reflection of those of the young country his parents have chosen for a home." Size: Trade Paperback. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1.
