Wow! What a collection of some of the best women writers in the 20th century! This is a creative, emotional, and thought-provoking anthology covering a span of 100 years. Each story creates a rich and vivid world... most of them will leave you reflecting for weeks, if not for the rest of your life. I mean it! The variation of the settings, narratives, characters is astounding. They each create a piece of the tapestry of what it means to be alive. I picked this up from Amazon and then bought more for gifts... it's perfect for anyone who has short bursts of reading time and most of the stories are real page turners. It's quality literature but accessible real-life reading.

This is a very fine anthology of writings by Jewish women, set according to the time period and therefore with certain themes that emerge-- i.e. immigration, assimilation, etc. A great and eclectic group of authors, includes some great standards such as I Stand Here Ironing by Tillie Oson and The Shawl by Cynthia Oczick as well as work by marvelous less well known writers such as Sheila Schwartz. A very fine and much needed collection.

Stories of Jewish immigrants carving out an America for themselves, as America carves itself into them. History through short stories, each with a voice of its own, and poignant. Highly recommended.

I needed this book for a Book Club I am part of. That's all I have to say. Thanks for having it available for sale.

The first reviewer obviously can not read or lacks the ability to comprehend deep stories. This book is full of wonderfully sad stories about suffering. They are a reflection of the evil we can inflict on our fellow people. The stories provide lessons of hope and strength inspired by some of the worst attrocities of history. Do not let the poor review sway you. I too had to read many of the stories for classes, but I read the ones not assigned on my own. The book is wonderful and diverse.

It is rare to fine an anthology as bad as this. These stories are just terribble. I had to read this for school. If you have to do the same, under any circumstances, DO NOT. Get a friend to tell you what its about. Pay your sibling. Just don't read it!!
