Description
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.

"A vivid, affectionate portrait of American womanhood.... Diamant has built her career on taking women seriously, and Addie Baum is another strong heroine with an irrepressible voice."—LATimes
