Reviews

  • "A profoundly moving novel, and an honest and true one. It cuts right to the heart of life . . . If you miss A Tree Grows in Brooklyn you will deny yourself a rich experience... It is a poignant and deeply understanding story of childhood and family relationships."

    New York Times
  • "This story radiates life."

    Daily Telegraph
  • "One of the books of the century"
