Title: Boston Girl, the Author: DIAMANT ANITA Format: HARDCOVER Publication date: 01/02/2015 Imprint: SIMON & SCHUSTER Price: $16.95 Publishing status: Active
From her biblical debut novel The Red Tent through the Holocaust survival novel Day After Night, Anita Diamant has portrayed women finding their voices in a changing world. Here she introduces us to one of her most beguiling characters, 80-something Addie Baum, the spirited daughter of immigrant Jewish parents in Boston's North End, who in 1985 tells her granddaughter about growing up in early 20th-century America. Eager to escape the constrictions of her upbringing, Addie embraced literature and created a life—from the Jazz Age to the feminist movement—that both exemplified and helped define the modern woman.
