A Tree Grows in Brooklyn



THIS IS THE STORY of Francie Nolan and the world of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a hard and exacting world but a good one for a sensitive and imaginative child.

As far back as she could remember, Francie needed to know toughness, for life in Williams-burg was lived without kid gloves. You faced up to it or you went down—and Katie Nolan's chil­dren were not the kind to go down. It was no mat­ter if the neighbors scorned the Nolans because of Johnny's liking for the bottle, or because Aunt Sissy had a habit of marrying frequently without the formality of divorce. Life in the Nolan home may not have been very pretty, but it certainly had its drama, especially for young Francie, who watched and thought and remembered. And one day all these recollections flowered into a rich and exciting novel of childhood that creates, with warm sympathy and understanding, a sense of exciting life in the town across the river from Manhattan.
