I was very surprised with this book, finding in it a very different view of Jewish life in America at the start of the twentieth century. Using the stories in her own family, Stella Suberman gives a well-written fictionalized memoir of life in a small town in Tennessee with plenty of sarcasm, wit, and the shattering of stereotypes. There is one scene that will disturb some people, but it is necessary to the story. Four stars overall, and recommended.
