Publisher's Summary

Lauded as the most profound novel of Jewish life ever written by an American, Call It Sleep seamlessly weaves together the searing pains and subtle joys of immigrant life in New York’s Lower East Side. It is the story of David Schearl, a dangerously imaginative little boy who arrives from Eastern Europe in 1907. Shock by shock, he is exposed to the blows - and occasional pleasures - of life in the crowded tenements.

brilliant

i read this book in the 1960's. it had been written and released in the 1930's to good reviews but little readership. those of us who were in our 20's in the 1960's have never forgotten it...incredibly well written, painfully living the world of the child in a strange land, that of an immigrant child and of childhood itself. i was spellbound listening to george guidall's amazing reading. this is a classic american novel.
