Levinson of Harvard
L.M. Vincent, author
At the turn of the 20th century, a young Jewish immigrant living in the North End of Boston yearns to be a college man, no matter the cost. Five decades later his grandson embarks on his own college education and comes face-to-face with the unexpected secrets of his long-dead grandfather. Through dual narratives across time, LEVINSON OF HARVARD traces the parallel stories of grandfather and grandson, as each grapples with misguided aspirations, antisemitism, the loss of innocence, and the weight of family legacy.
Dick Friedman, Contributing Editor, "HARVARD MAGAZINE"
"With history and heart, L.M. Vincent takes an ingenious premise and creates a rollicking page-turner of two generations of nice Jewish boys attempting to penetrate Harvard's forbidden (to them) sanctums."
". . . a stylish and surprisingly gripping family drama. . . A compulsively readable university tale of identity and acceptance."
