The author presents a candid portrayal of Jewish life in the immigrant tenements of New York





Henry Roth (1906-1995) was born in the Austro-Hungarian province of Galitzia. He probably landed on Ellis Island in 1909 and began his life in New York on the Lower East Side, in the slums where Call It Sleep is set. He is the author as well of Shifting Landscapes, a collection of essays, and Mercy of a Rude Stream.
