Sinopsis:

One of Abraham Cahan's most famous works brings late 19th century Russia to life in this fictional autobiography. David Levinsky tells the story of a young man who grows up in poverty after the death of his father, becomes a Talmudic scholar, and, after the loss of his mother, begins to consider emigration to America. In 1980 this riveting story was adapted into a musical.

From the Inside Flap:

The Rise of David Levinsky, written by the legendary founder and editor of the "Jewish Daily Forward, is an early Jewish-American classic. According to the scholar Sam B. Girgus, "The novel is more than an important literary work and cultural document. It forms part of the traditional ritual of renewal of the American Way."
First published in 1917, Abraham Cahan's realistic novel tells the story of a young talmudic scholar who emigrates from a small town in Russia to the melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York City. As the Jewish "greenhorn" rises from the depths of poverty to become a millionaire garment merchant, he discovers the unbearably high price of assimilation.

Just two months after founding the company, the first book was purchased and shipped: Charlotte's Web, by E. B. White, for $4.74. With warehouses distributed across North America, we have brought scale and innovation to processing and selling used books, allowing us to continually grow selection and ship even faster to ThriftBooks customers. While cutting edge pricing technology and the latest supply-chain methods allow us to serve you better, it's our people that make the difference at ThriftBooks. Each quality, used book is saved, sorted, rated, shelved and finally, shipped by hand. You can have confidence that the quality book you choose will be sent to you, unless our software tells us that a superior quality copy can be shipped to you more efficiently; then we'll give you an upgrade at no charge. ThriftBooks has been featured for pioneering methods in online used book selling in many publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Seattle Times, Puget Sound Business Journal and The Software Development Times.
