March

The Invisible Wall, 

by Harry Bernstein

Thursday, March 13, 7:30 PM

 

 

A gripping coming-of-age memoir of Bernstein's childhood in a poverty-stricken and religiously divided mill town in northern England before and during World War I. Home to both Christian and Jewish families, the street where Bernstein grew up was defined by the strict social and vocational segregation of the two religious groups. Bernstein deftly narrates the tale of his sister's forbidden love for a Christian boy from the other side of the street. From the perspective of his boyhood self, Bernstein offers a glimpse into a family riven by poverty, sibling jealousies, and an abusive, alcoholic father, yet held together tenaciously by a caring mother. In the tradition of Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes. (Library Journal Review)
