This should be in the fiction section, but we discovered, too late, that it was not autobiography, and the fiction section had gone to press. Sorry! ..Story of a Jewish immigrant boy who grows up in a pioneer city of the Middle Weat, marries a Gentile above his social station, and painfully climbs to a position of supposed security, only to find that in their children the problems of bitterness, intolerance and threat cannot be put aside. The old Jewish characters are well done; but the dialogue lacks fidelity and the result is a of unreality. However, it is a challenging book.
