A Tree Grows in Brooklyn in Books Strand 80 at Strand Books


First published in 1943. The classic, poignant & deeply understanding coming-of-age story of the young, sensitive, and idealistic Francie Nolan. Through her eyes, readers are transported into the ghetto life of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, circa 1902-1919. She is the fictional stand-in for the author, who grew up in the Williamsburg slums. The civilization of author Smith's Williamsburg exists in very few living memories, but is forever made indelible through the vivid portrayal presented in her novel. 'A book in which, no matter our backgrounds, we recognize ourselves.' - Anna Quindlen. 493p.
