Overview

And the Bridge Is Love by Faye Moskowitz

"A book that will make you stand up and cheer."— The Detroit News

"Bridges the gap between humor and despair, past and present, Jew and gentile, to reveal its author's simple humanity, deeply rooted in her unwavering love of family. . . . Touching and compelling."— The Washington Post

The Feminist Press brings back into print a literary gem. And the Bridge Is Love is a timeless collection of life stories about growing up in a Jewish family in Detroit during the Depression and becoming a writer in Washington, DC. The essays range from one on a friend who is dying to a hilarious account of binge eating at a wedding. In between these two poles is a world both modern and old-fashioned, vivid, yet vanishing.
