Nilda (Paperback): Nicholasa Mohr Nilda (Paperback)
Nicholasa Mohr
R257 R211 Discovery Miles 2 110 Save R46 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

It's the summer of 1941, and all ten-year-old Nilda wants to do is enjoy the cool water with her friends. But the policemen's curses end their fun, and their animosity is played out repeatedly in Nilda's life. She is constantly treated with contempt by adults in positions of authority: teachers, nurses and social workers. At home she is surrounded by a large and loving family that supports her artistic abilities as they experience financial hardship, the onset of World War II and the death of loved ones. Named an "Outstanding Book of the Year" by The New York Times and one of the "Best Books of the Year" by the American Library Association in 1973 when it was first published, Nicholasa Mohr's classic novel about life as an immigrant in New York City offers a poignant look at one young girl's experiences. Issues of race, religion and machismo are realistically depicted in this groundbreaking novel that was one of the first by a Latina author to be hailed by the mainstream media.

In a city called New York ...
In a neighborhood called El Bronx ...

  • The Fernandex children own a very special pet: A white hen named after their favorite Hollywood movie star.
  • A new girl comes to school - a gypsy child who can read palms and foretell the future.
  • A young boy must face the humiliation of wearing his uncle's orange roach-killer shoes to his high school graduation.

In the South Bronx - or El Bronx, as it's known to the people who live there - anything can happen. A migrant "fresh off the boat" from Puerto Rico can be somebody on the mainland, pursue the American Dream ... and maybe even make it come true.

Here are stories that capture the flavor and beat of El Bronx in its heyday, from 1946-1956.
