About This Item

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1920. First edition of Anzia Yezierska's rare first book. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by the Anzia Yezierska on the front free endpaper. Near fine with a trace of edge wear in a very good dust jacket with small chips and tears to the extremities. Rare signed and especially so in the original dust jacket. In stories that draw heavily on her own life, Anzia Yezierska portrays the immigrant's struggle to become a "real" American, in such stories as "Yekl," "Hunger," "The Fat of the Land," and "How I Found America." Set mostly in New York's Lower East Side, the stories brilliantly evoke the oppressive atmosphere of crowded streets and shabby tenements and lay bare the despair of families trapped in unspeakable poverty, working at demeaning jobs, and coping with the barely hidden prejudices of their new land.
