An exceptionally evocative memoir of Demas's middle-class childhood in a close-knit Greek family living in a respectable post-war New York City housing project. Rather than offering a chronological account of her childhood, Demas explores her memories by topic, including elevators, games, phones, television, subways, and other themes. Annotation c.
