Synopses & Reviews
In this black and white trade paperback, Will Eisner examines the life, death, and rebirth of a South Bronx neighborhood over the span of 120 years. Examining the diverse ethnic experiences of Dutch, Irish, Jewish, English, and Italian settlers during the early 20th century, Eisner depicts the evolution of a rural area into an urban mecca as waves of immigration and its resulting social trauma mold a city. Witnessing these events through the eyes of workers, dreamers, reformers, and criminals, the reader is taken on a journey of hope, heartbreak, and healing.
"[A]n ambitious story of the life, death and incipient rebirth of a South Bronx neighborhood." Publishers Weekly
