Nobody's Like Me : A Bronx Girl's Memoir (Paperback) (Irene Abruzzese)
about this item
Nobody's Like Me is a search for self, while simultaneously a tribute to women, family and the positive forces of love over generations. It exposes the raw emotions of a young girl, more spiritual than religious, who attempts to find her place in a world of non-Jews and within her own cultural group. Prejudice, isolation, ostracism, sexuality and lack of identity prevailed, as she moved from predominantly Irish neighborhoods in the Bronx, to her so-called own, safe haven of the Van Cortlandt, Amalgamated Housing area. The fire of this saga was further fueled by the awakenings of the fifties, the explosion of the sixties and her own tumultuous home. Nobody's Like Me intimately and magically reveals common trials and tribulations unified by the significant people and events, influencing one's life. They are fated, should you believe, with a bit of the paranormal. Throughout the passages, a spider- like web emerges that entraps, enwraps and exposes the beauty in both life and death. So embrace the cycle, peer through this window, travel beside those within and hopefully benefit through the journey together. YOU MAY JUST FIND A PIECE OF YOURSELF !
