    How does one remember a world that literally no longer exists? Told from the point-of-view of Marta Eisenstein Lane on the occasion of her 18th birthday, Barren Island is the story of a factory island in New York's Jamaica Bay, where the city's dead horses were rendered into glue from the mid-19th century until the 1930s. The story begins with the arrival of the Eisenstein family, immigrants from Eastern Europe, and explores how the political and social upheavals of the 1930s affect them and their neighbors in the following years.
