Overview

Look Back and Laugh by Jean Desmond

These "confessions" tell of the struggle of a teen-age Brooklyn girl in the 1930s Depression to overcome a bad start -- poverty, rape, an illegitimate child, her sister's suicide and her father's unsuccessful attempt -- to pull herself out of the slums and find a better life for herself and her child.

Look Back And Laugh by Jean Desmond, gave me a glimpse of Brooklyn and poverty in the 30's. I was deeply touched by this young girls plight. A MUST read for anyone who wants to know what it was like in 'The Good Old Days'. Betty Smith and Frank McCourt, move over. Another great writer is in our midst.

From the moment I opened the book, there was action and great story telling. I was rivited, and honestly couldn't put it down! When I checked with the publisher I learned the author is working on a sequel 'My Side of the Story', which I cannot wait to read. What a wonderful writer.
