This mas­ter­work of Amer­i­can immi­grant lit­er­a­ture is set in the 1920s on the Low­er East Side of Man­hat­tan and tells the sto­ry of Sara Smolin­sky, the youngest daugh­ter of an Ortho­dox rab­bi, who rebels against her father’s rigid con­cep­tion of Jew­ish wom­an­hood. Sarah’s strug­gle towards inde­pen­dence and self-ful­fill­ment res­onates with a pas­sion all can share. Beau­ti­ful­ly redesigned page for page with the pre­vi­ous edi­tions, Bread Givers is an essen­tial his­tor­i­cal work with endur­ing relevance.
