      The Bronx (/ b r ɒ ŋ k s /) is a borough of New York City, coterminous with Bronx County, in the U.S. state of New York, the third-most densely populated county in the United States. It is south of Westchester County; northeast and east of Manhattan, across the Harlem River; and north of Queens, across the East Bronx has a land area of 42 square miles ( km 2) and a population of City: New York City. "As an account of growing up female, it is a fit companion piece to Mary McCarthy's classic Memoirs of a Catholic Girlhood."-Le Anne Schreiber, The New York : Simon, Kate.

        She has read Bronx Primitive multiple times and highly recommends it. Barbara, a fan of well-researched historical fiction, recommended The Lilac Girls, Martha Hall Kelly’s novel which recounts the experiences of three women during and after World War II, and offers a vivid picture of life at the Ravensbruck concentration : Elizabeth Waters.   The result is a vibrant mix of historical and contemporary voices; at one point an excerpt from E. L. Doctorow's novel Billy Bathgate is followed by an account from Kate Simon's Bronx Primitive: Portraits in a : Rutgers University Press.
