Summary:

Lauded as the most profound novel of Jewish life ever written by an American, Call It Sleep seamlessly weaves together the searing pains and subtle joys of immigrant life in New York's Lower East Side. It is the story of David Schearl, a dangerously imaginative little boy who arrives from Eastern Europe in 1907. Shock by shock, he is exposed to the blows-and occasional pleasures-of life in the crowded tenements.

    Interesting book. I need to do more research to better understand this book, especially the father Albert.
