Got this by mistake, was after the 'The Lazarus Phenomenon' just to see what it is about.

From what I read of this one however I would not recommend it

This book is hard to classify. It's a mash-up of the author's (fictionalized?) life and process doing the research about the murder of a 1900's Jewish immigrant. This isn't the easiest book to describe. Many Americans would be surprised at the life of these early immigrants and the discrimation and poverty that was part of their daily lives. I recommend this rather off-beat book for people who live historical novels.

This story is both terribly sad and terribly hopeful. It explores how immigrants can never fully understand the new culture they find themselves in, and finds redemption in the most bleak of circumstances.
