"Rivington Street gallops along at a satisfying pace, pulling its numerous characters in and out of scrapes and turmoil... Meredith Tax is a knowledgeable feminist, and her concerns are shown to advantage in her women characters--people who think seriously and passionately about work, politics, friendship and sex." -- Jean Zorn, New York Times Book Review "Splendid... What Tax gives us--really for the first time--is the whole story of the community of Jewish East European women immigrants... A completely imagined book." -- Madelon Bedell, Ms. "Tax's zesty tale of a Russian immigrant family in the early 1900s has the appeal of commercial romance but is also well researched and skillfully written. Sweeping the reader along with rich characterizations and a plot humming with dramatic momentum, Tax vivifies social history as well." -- Publishers WeeklyFrom Library Journal:
Rivington Street follows the lives of four Jewish women on Manhattan's Lower East Side at the turn of the century as they encounter love, politics, and the working world. Union Square recounts the story of several women in the United States and Europe between the world wars. Originally released in 1982 and 1988, respectively, this duo is probably more for feminist readers.
