A Walker In the City

Alfred Kazin (1915-1998)
A Walker In the City
New York: Harcourt, Brace, 1951

Kazins intense re-entering of his Brownsville childhood as the first American-born of an immigrant family evokes my mothers own early years on Thatford Avenue, and the immigrant experience of feeling outside America.
