POLLY ADLER was born in Yanow on the Russian/Polish border in 1900, emigrated to New York City in 1912, and died in California in 1962. RACHEL RUBIN is associate professor of American studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston and author of Jewish Gangsters of Modern Literature.
"This is a truly important contribution to American history--in many fields: immigration, women's history, urban history, and cultural history. Rubin's introduction is wonderfully written and surveys, thematically, all the issues that should be covered." -- Ruth Rosen "Rubin's introduction to this book is a major contribution to scholarship because it rescues from oblivion a vibrant and compelling immigrant story, presenting it from a new vantage point and allowing the reader to see the contradictions of the period Polly Adler lived through within a broadly painted historical context." -- Elizabeth Ewen
