A novel by

 
 
Painting a grand panorama of New York City in the Roaring Twenties, Henry Roth once again draws us into the adolescent world of Ira Stigman. Through this absorbing narrative, Roth evokes a bygone- a time of innocence shadowed by forbidden experience, for Ira's fateful story is that of a tormented teenager doomed to near madness by the twisted, violent urges within his own heart. So intense and consuming is a secret carried by the young Ira that it can only be revealed by the old man, seventy years later, in streams of cathartic torrents that free him from the shackles of his past.
