The Brooklyn Novels: Summer In Williamsburg Homage To Blenholt Low Company
These three novels of the 1930s constitute an American classic. In their own way, they do for the Jewish immigrants of Brooklyn what Studs Lonigan did for the Irish of Chicago.

There was always a ferment, slums or no slums. The slums didn't hold them down."Time hasn't held down these novels, either.

What's true remains so, and Farrell spoke the truth back in 1937: there are still few novelists in America today who possess Fuchs's talent, his energy, his sense of life.
