I'm following @batsy and recycling a post from an earlier challenge nearly three years ago. Published in 1934. It does a good job of showing the gap between what a person thinks/feels in their native tongue and what they are able to express in English.

Another used bookstore find that I bought on a whim. Interested to read this story about a family of Jewish immigrants moving to the slums of NYC. 🏙

Read this for a class many moons ago. I don't even remember what the class was called, but I remember this story of Jewish immigrants to NYC at the beginning of the twentieth century. It's a bit of an unsung modernist American classic, I think. #booktober #immigrantstories
