Yekl, a tale of the New York ghetto

This classic account of the dark side of the immigration experience was the first book published by Abraham Cahan, who himself immigrated to the United States from Lithuania in early adulthood. Protagonist Jake Podkovnik is eager to shed all traces of his upbringing and ethnicity and embrace the American dream -- but his transformation has negative consequences that ripple further than anyone could have expected.
