Bronx Primitive: Portraits in a Childhood Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The classic, unforgettable memoir of a young girl's coming of age, "Bronx Primitive" recalls the vitality of an immigrant neighborhood through the unsentimental eyes of a child. With an unerring eye for detail and an iridescent, clear-eyed prose, Kate Simon captures the particular world of her childhood as well as the universal uncertainties and triumphs of a young girl on the threshold of womanhood.

Synopsis:

"As an account of growing up female, it is a fit companion piece to Mary McCarthy's classic Memoirs of a Catholic Girlhood."—Le Anne Schreiber, The New York Times.
