About the Author

Ninety-six-year-old Harry Bernstein emigrated to the United States with his family after World War I.

Bernstein lives in Brick, New Jersey, where he is working on another book.

Reviews

"Harry Bernstein returns home and, magically, takes us with him. With its dancing prose and captivating descriptions of neighborhood life, we experience with the child Harry all the wonder, thrill, and heartbreak of being a working-class kid learning to navigate the balkanized world of Christians and Jews within a single English mill town. Bernstein gives us a people's history, a street-level perspective on a world that might otherwise have been lost, with crucial lessons that will endure throughout time."
--Michael Patrick MacDonald, author of All Souls

"[An] affecting debut memoir . . . When major world events touch the poverty-stricken block, the individual coming-of-age story is intensified without being trivialized, and the conversational account takes on the heft of a historical novel with stirring success."
--Publisher's Weekly (starred review)
