Leavening Literature

To celebrate Passover in Counterfeit Chic style, pick up Abraham Cahan's classic 1917 novel, The Rise of David Levinsky.  It's an immigrant's tale of the cost of assimilation and American-style success, as well as an inside look at the early 20th-century garment industry in New York, knockoffs and all. 

Thanks to Professors Sondra Leftoff and Shubha Ghosh for independently recommending this book.  Great minds think alike.
