(From the publisher):
Humor told from an adolescent girl's perspective, Musicians and Watchmakers is a deceptively intuitive account of a Jewish family living in Buenos Aires in the 1940s. Author Alicia Steimberg captures the quirky insights of a teenager in a flawlessly rendered colloquial style and in doing so, proves herself a master novelist. On this novel, she has commented that in her descriptions of this young woman's experience, there lies a fictionalized autobiography that combines her own recollections with those of others who have shared similar experiences.
