    Thank you for posting the link to the article on A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Erika.

    I watched the film version on TV in England when I was twelve. My father had died a little while before and I remember finding a degree of solace in the film. But I was in my sixties before I was able to read the novel (thanks to having found a Perennial Classics edition on Kindle). I was most impressed.

      Oh, yes, I imagine that Francie’s (and Neely’s) loss of their father must have resonated with you, Clive. I saw the film once. I have read the book countless times.

    I love–and often teach–the book in a class, “The New Me: American Immigrant Writers.” I’ve also noticed a failure to appreciate what ought to be considered a remarkable classic. Thanks for this appraisel.
