Journey Through A Small Planet

Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Thame Dust jacket very good - only slight signs of shelf-wear. Pages discoloured from age, but unmarked and binding sound. Emanuel Litvinoff recalls his working-class Jewish childhood in the East End of London: a small cluster of streets right next to the city, but worlds apart in culture and spirit. With vivid intensity Litvinoff describes the overcrowded tenements of Brick Lane and Whitechapel, the smell of pickled herring and onion bread, the rattle of sewing machines and chatter in Yiddish. He also relates stories of his parents, who fled from Russia in 1914, his experiences at school and a brief flirtation with Communism. See Oxfam website for delivery information
