Publisher's Summary

Kate Simon was born Kaila Grobsmith in Warsaw, Poland, in 1912. She immigrated with her family to New York City in 1917. Bronx Primitive is a delightfully honest, colorful, witty - and completely unsentimental - memoir of her girlhood in a Bronx filled with immigrants from many nations. When it was first published in 1982, it was named one of the 12 best books of the year by the New York Times Book Review.

Barbara Rosenblat captures the soul of the story

having grown up in Brooklyn I was immediately drawn into the imagery and lives of the characters. Barbara Rosenblats narration captures the soul of the main character and your imagination.
