Review:

Memoir by Kate Simon, published in 1982. It evokes working-class Jewish immigrant life in the Bronx during the early 20th century. (1986) and Etchings in an Hourglass (1990) were later installments in Simon's autobiography. -- The Merriam-Webster Encylopedia of Literature

From Library Journal:

Simon's 1982 memoir made several best books lists. It follows her own life as an immigrant child growing into adolescence in the Bronx. This remains for "general readers and mature YAs" (LJ 5/1/82).
