Praise for Whimsy’s Heavy Things:

“I am always intrigued by this historic event, and the lives of immigrants during this time period. One book I’ve owned for over 30 years is Meredith Tax’s 1982 Rivington Street. Never been able to get rid of it. I really liked the span of the story, taking our characters from the pogroms in Russia to the eve of WWII. Nicely written, with good characters.” – Ms. Yingling Reads
