Hilarious and heart-breaking tales of a boyhood in 1920s New York, told by the writer whom critic Alistair Cooke called "the Dickens of the Lower East Side."
Originally published in print in 1970, Fourth Street East is considered one of Weidman's most delightful works, offering the listener the voices and rhythms of New York's Jewish immigrants, the garment district in which so many of them worked and the extraordinary teachers who helped them become Americans.
Jerome Weidman (1913-1998), one of the most beloved chroniclers of Jewish American life, was the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning author if I Can Get It For You Wholesale and Fiorello!
