Contrary to what the stars say, I actually enjoyed this collection of short stories. I first want to begin by saying I gave it 2 stars because these stories have real and factual elements to them, but ultimately they were fiction. Some people enjoy that.

I, personally, prefer the raw story - no fictional elements. I understand that that was the entire point of this set of stories. Authors do that a lot, but it's simply not what resonates I received this book through a Goodreads Giveaway contest! Authors do that a lot, but it's simply not what resonates with me. I loved this because it was about Jewish people.

Perhaps some of the most marginalized, stereotyped peoples' experiences were brought to light through these short stories. They were heartbreaking to say the least. Reading them, I thought about the experiences of my parents and even my own experiences as an immigrant and there was definitely a connection.
I recommend this book to those who enjoy short stories. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand the immigrant experience which is truly something I think many Americans need to understand. But more importantly, if you're planning on reading this book, appreciate and recognize that this is the JEWISH immigrant experience, which is in my opinion the most important element of this book.

Brown rated it it was amazing Shelves: jewish-books. Yezierska wrote these stories in the late s, and this collection was published in The stories are quite raw in that they are unvarnished, and show what the life of the immigrant was in the early 20th century. It's quite a glimpse at a rough period and the despair and demeaning way of life is eye opening. The stories are uneven, but "The Fat of the Land," about an immigrant mother whose children made good, was so beautifully captured it and rendered so clearly, it gave me new insight in Yezierska wrote these stories in the late s, and this collection was published in The stories are uneven, but "The Fat of the Land," about an immigrant mother whose children made good, was so beautifully captured it and rendered so clearly, it gave me new insight into the dilemmas of immigrant parents.
That story alone makes the collection worth reading or just go straight to this story! A very readable collection of short stories about immigrants in New York in the early part of the s. The women who populate these stories are all searching for themselves and for their piece of the American dream that they bet on when they left their villages in Poland and Russia to come to New York. The women now find themselves barely scraping by while trying to break free from the poverty and daily grind of children and sweatshops.
I found the characters compelling and their voracious des A very readable collection of short stories about immigrants in New York in the early part of the s. I found the characters compelling and their voracious desires for bigger, more real lives to be both heart-wrenching and yet surprisingly optimistic. In general, short stories aren't my favorite thing to read, but I enjoyed this collection. The author did a great job of capturing the immigrant experience and of writing about different experiences. There were some stories that I enjoyed a lot more than other, but I didn't dislike any of them.
I would definitely recommend this collection to people who enjoy short stories. Received from NetGalley. Jan 21, Liz Delf rated it really liked it. Falling under the genre of "working girl's fiction," these stories are all about Eastern European immigrants in New York in the As the title implies, all of the characters are hungry for various things: to be an American, to be educated, to be loved, etc. Very readable, I enjoyed it very much. Interesting side note: apparently Yezierska was the first author to use Yiddish expressions in her characters' dialogue. The things you learn when you read the introduction!

See my rating for "The Open Cage. Love the messages in this book, and the stories are all really humbling. The writing tended to be melodramatic, though.

Jun 03, Maile rated it really liked it. Perhaps it's my own family connection to the stories, but Yezierska's work touches me. I find her stories fascinating, and her protagonists heartbreaking. This is about as saccharine and sentimental as it gets.
