    In 1913, little Malka Treynovsky flees Russia with her family. Bedazzled by tales of gold and movie stardom, she tricks them into buying tickets for America.

Taken in by a tough-loving Italian ices peddler, she manages to survive through cunning and inventiveness. As she learns the secrets of his trade, she begins to shape her own destiny. She falls in love with a gorgeous, illiterate radical named Albert, and they set off across America in an ice cream truck.

    Based on the belief that there's more to women's lives than just getting a date, Gilman's stories tell of struggling to get a life and a clue, and engaging in some spectacularly demented behavior along the way. At turns heartbreaking, insightful, and screamingly funny, it uniquely chronicles a generation and heralds a talented writer of note.

    They were young, brilliant, and bold. They set out to conquer the world. But the world had other plans for them. Best-selling author Susan Jane Gilman's new memoir is a hilarious and harrowing journey, a modern heart of darkness filled with Communist operatives, backpackers, and pancakes.

    New York, 1913. Die kleine Malka lebt mitten im Trubel der dicht gedrängten Straßen und übervölkerten Mietskasernen im Einwandererviertel auf der Lower East Side. Die meisten hier sind arm, haben zum Leben zu wenig, zum Sterben zu viel, leben von der Hand in den Mund. Doch listig und raffiniert wie sie ist, lernt Malka schnell, sich im Viertel durchzuschlagen.
