Bernstein zooms in on the small mill town of Stockport, where he and his family lived on the Jewish side of the street, divided from their neighbors by an invisible wall as effective as any tangible barrier. Yet, in spite of this impenetrable social segregation and against all odds, the authors older sister falls in love with a Christian from across the street, sparking a family crisis as tragic in its own way as Romeo and Juliet. Like Angelas Ashes (another poignant slice of life from a literary late bloomer), Bernsteins gorgeous memoir is an eloquent evocation of a particular time and place.
