For the army of Grossinger patrons, this biography of the family will be almost a must. For here is the progress of Selik and Malka as they turn their little farm into a boarding house, surrounded by all sorts of physical and financial obstacles, and as that boarding house develops into the 750 acre plant it is today. Their servant problems, their unexpected expansion programs, their famous guests and their absorption of all likely talents from among their hired help and their ""boarders""- this is part of Selik, Malka's, Jenny's and Harry's story, part of the Kosher hotel's rapid rise to fame. A more than friendly handling, some of Grossinger's highly praised recipes, and cartoon like illustrations by John Fischetti will make a place for this among all old ""G"" guests. A definite market here, primarily Eastern.
