Bread Givers is essential reading for feminist scholars, historians, Jewish studies scholars, students of immigrant literature, and anyone with a heart. It is one of the classic novels on early-20th century Eastern European immigration to the United States.
I absolutely loved this book; its images are inelible.
Anzia Yezierska's The Breadgivers is most valuable as a fictional account of Jewish immigrant life on New York's Lower East Side in the 1920s as told from the female perspective. The father, a Torah scholar, is a patriarchal tyrant who beats each of his daughters into submission with his unending needs. The writing is naturalistic and without frills. A companion volume to Henry Roth's Call It Sleep.
