A Memoir of American Opportunities and Viennese Dreams
By Monroe E. Price
This is a memoir about the power of American assimilation and opportunity in the face of persisting refugee realities. Monroe Price recounts the continuing impact of European identities as families, cast from their homes by the rise of Hitler and the Third Reich, struggle to find their way in a new and challenging environment.
Price's memoir weaves complicated strands—his Viennese origins, campaigns to distribute Jewish refugees away from New York City, the special qualities of Midwestern Ohio life in the 1950s—and the contrasting patterns of adjustment by different generations in his family in the American landscape. As he traces the path of his own life, Price reveals a more universal story of adjustment, and the relationship between a marginal community and the drama of American citizenship.
