A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

“A profoundly moving novel, and an honest and true one. It cuts right to the heart of life…If you miss A Tree Grows in Brooklyn you will deny yourself a rich experience…It is a poignant and deeply understanding story of childhood and family relationships.”

So said an old New York Times book review of a classic I have somehow missed. But no more… it is next on my book shelf. Sometimes it’s hard for books on “must read” lists to live up to their hype. But I don’t think this best-seller (published in 1943) will disappoint. Have you read it?
