BRONX PRIMITIVE Portraits in a Childhood

by | Read by Barbara Rosenblat

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1982

Kate Simon is the author of NEW YORK PLACES AND PLEASURES, a guidebook first published in 1959, which many consider the best such book about New York ever written. It's no surprise, then, that BRONX PRIMITIVE, a guidebook to one child's immigrant experience in New York, should also be a gem of its kind. Simon, who was born in Warsaw in 1912, arrived in the Bronx with her family when she was 6 years old. She has a gift for recollecting the colorful and fragrant details that made up her streets and the character, and characters, of her childhood world. The astonishingly versatile Barbara Rosenblat brings these vanished people, places, and pleasures to vibrant life.
