Musicians & watchmakers by Alicia Steimberg( Book )

17 editions published between 1971 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Told from the perspective of an adolescent girl, this humorous and deceptively intuitive account of a Jewish family living in 1940s Buenos Aires tackles themes of identity and history through a flawlessly rendered colloquial style. Semi-autobiographical and charged with energy to match the young narrator's age, this episodic novel tackles issues of religious belonging, the first sparks of political awareness, budding sexuality, and the complications of an eccentric family. --
