A mesmerizing, heartbreaking graphic novel of immigrant life on New York's Lower East Side at the turn of the 20th-century, as seen through the eyes of twin sisters whose lives take radically and tragically different paths. In drawings that capture both the tumult and the telling details of that life, Unterzakhn
(Yiddish for "Underthings") tells the story of sisters Esther and Fanya: from wide-eyed little girls to adults battling for their own piece of the "golden land," where each of them much make painful decisions that will have unavoidably tragic repercussions.
