Haunch, Paunch and Jowl; an Anonymous Autobiography

Samuel Ornitz

First published in 1933, this novel tells the story of a Jewish family living in New York City in the early 20th century. The book explores themes of identity, assimilation and the immigrant experience. Written in a humorous and irreverent style, the novel was controversial at the time of its release for its frank portrayal of sexuality and its use of slang and non-standard English. Today, it is recognized as an important work of Jewish-American literature.
