Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE----------HOW I FOUND AMERICA: COLLECTED STORIES OF Anzia Yezierska, Introduction by Vivian Gornick. The Jewish immigrant experience in all its joy and pain has been captured beautifully in Yezierska's work. Her stories and novels, written from the 1920s to the 1960s, immortalized the immigrant Jews of the Lower East Side of New York, particularly the women. This collection of 27 stories--virtually all her short fiction--includes the two collections published during her lifetime, Hungry Hearts and Children of Loneliness. In Wings,'' a recent Russian immigrant who works as a janitor of a building on the Lower East Side fruitlessly pins her hopes on a gentleman tenant. In My Own People.'' Yezierska, speaking in the third person, writes, Would she ever become articulate enough to express beautifully what she saw and felt?'' After all, her experiences were the stifling sweatshop, a meager night-school education, and a blinding desire to express herself. These are stories of old age as well, written in the 1960s when Yezierska's reputation had waned and she was living in poverty again. Her stories capture the passionate struggle of the human spirit.
