Written in 1946 and translated from Yiddish by A.H. Gross. Situated on E. 48th St. on the last block between the river and 1st Ave. Many Jews and a few gentiles make up the myriad characters of this charming but none too subtle novel. A Catholic girl, Mary, marries Irving Davidowsky, causing his father to sit shiva for him. Irving is making his fortune running a garment business. Includes much of the author philosophizing about religion, labor, socialism. Asch remains essentially Jewish, while having an open mind and a certain curiosity about Christianity. ( )
