In the story, Brooklyn Days, the plot twists ironically, and we watch Jewish immigrants emerge from their struggle and despair and attain tragic splendor. Brooklyn Days, is one of the best stories I have read anywhere-ever. But select your own favorite in Box Camera Chronicles. These are amazing stories. You will never forget them."-Mary H.
