Union Square: A Novelby Meredith Tax
Taking up where her celebrated Rivington Street left off, Meredith Tax's Union Square brims over with the passions and struggles of five indomitable women: Hannah Levy, the Russian immigrant matriarch; Sarah, a communist organizer who sides with the union--and against her Bolshevik husband--in opposing the Hitler-Stalin pact; Ruby, who covertly undercuts her department store magnate husband's business with her own clothing designs; Rachel, a wealthy widow dedicated to bohemian life and the pleasures of the Jazz Age; and Rachel's sister-in-law, Tish, a lesbian expatriate who seeks sexual and artistic fulfillment in the salons of Paris and Weimar Germany.
Gutsy and engrossing, Union Square paints a complex, believable picture of the tumultuous years between the end of the First World War and the eve of the Second.
