Lillian Faderman - My Mother's Wars
Lillian Faderman writes the memoir her mother was never able to write. After leaving Latvia at 17 with ambitions to become a dancer, Mary lands in New York and finds a job in the garment industry. After being thrown out of her half-sister's house for becoming too wild, Mary ekes out a living until her 30s, when she has an intense affair with the man who becomes Lillian's father. A story of women, workers, and Jewish history, Faderman applies her trademark talent to this engrossing tale.
