One of Abraham Cahan's most famous works brings late 19th century Russia to life in this fictional autobiography. David Levinsky tells the story of a young man who grows up in poverty after the death of his father, becomes a Talmudic scholar, and, after the loss of his mother, begins to consider emigration to America. In 1980 this riveting story was adapted into a musical.Immigrantroman om den amerikanske drøm fortalt gennem den unge, russiske Talmud-studerende David og hans liv som jødisk immigrant i New York omkring århundredeskiftet, en skildring af den menneskelige side af immigrationshistorien og de moralske omkostninger, der er ved succes.
