The critical raves for Jennifer Brown’s debut novel—centered on the sacrifices of a Jewish mother and daughter in 1930s NYC—are starting to roll in: “A clear-eyed view of the sharp, difficult choices facing women on the cusp of equality” (Kirkus Reviews); “Satisfying both emotionally and narratively…Its suspenseful plot and warm emotional tone should appeal to a wide audience” (New York Journal of Books). Meet the author of Modern Girls, which transports us the pre-war Lower East Side to witness two generations of changing women.
