(From the publisher):
In 1890, Anzia Yezierska came to America with her parents from a Polish or Russian shtetl
and settled on New York's Lower East Side, where half a million Jews would live by 1910. Hungry Hearts
takes the clamorous streets and dilapidated tenements of this New World ghetto as its setting, depicting the despair of families trapped in unspeakable poverty, evoking the clatter and roar of the sweatshop, laying bare the heart constricted in the midst of teeming life.
