Title
A Stone in My Shoe: In Search of Neighbourhood
Abstract
A memoir by poet George Ellenbogen (b. 1934) describing his parents' navigation in a new world and his own childhood and adolescent experiences in Montreal in the 1940s and 1950s. The author describes his discovery of how Montreal's immigrant Jewish neighbourhood - a tight-knit community with extended families, its own shops, institutions, and daily Yiddish newspapers - sustained him and his family.
