Books: Land of ‘Golden’ dreams and tarnished identities

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/arts/article/books_land_of_golden_dreams_and_tarnished_identities_20070909

In her intricately plotted story, Gilmore deftly weaves fact into fiction as she traces the fortunes of three intertwined families of Jewish immigrants in early 20th century New York. The result is a compelling portrait of hopes, both realized and dashed, that explores questions of identity, self-invention, women's roles and the definition of success.
