Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan
Cloth; New. Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan. A tribute to New York City and its seaport.
Jennifer Egan's Manhattan Beach is an atmospheric and adventurous historical novel about women working at the Brooklyn Navy Yard during World War II. In drawing from the classic catalog of New York stories — everything from Betty Smith's A Tree Grows in Brooklyn to Joseph Mitchell's briny essays in The Bottom of the Harbor — Manhattan Beach also takes its place among them.
