Summary
"When Henry Roth published his debut novel Call It Sleep in 1934, it was greeted with considerable critical acclaim, though, in those troubled times, lackluster sales. Only with its paperback publication thirty years later did this novel receive the recognition it deserves - and still enjoys. Having sold to date millions of copies worldwide, Call It Sleep is the story of David Schearl, the "dangerously imaginative" child coming of age in the slums of New York."--Jacket
Summary
An imaginative young boy, David Schearl grows up and comes of age in a candid portrayal of Jewish life in the immigrant tenements of New York, in a novel first published in 1934. Reprint. 10,000 first printing
