      I read the whole thing thinking it reminded me of '97 Orchard', only to see at the end that it was written by the same author. That book was a good read too.

      Being a lover of bitter greens myself, I will always associate them with what Ziegelman wrote about the New Yorkers' image of Italian immigrants during the same time period: their diet is so poor that they actually enjoy eating WEEDS!!! Ha! It's good to see people coming around on stuff like that.
