Egg Time in Augusta by Hugh Roth

Hugh is the younger son of the author Henry Roth. Popular recognition of his father's work did not soon follow from critical acclaim. Call It Sleep, the classic portrayal of Jewish and American immigrant life in New York City, was out of print for almost thirty years -- until rediscovered in the early 1960s.

In 1946 the family moved from Boston to Maine, where they raised and slaughtered ducks and geese, and Hugh's mother was a teacher and principal in local schools.

Egg Time in Augusta recalls this transition and the ensuing years with three narrative perspectives that challenge and highlight cross-cultural insights.
