Not the West Side, but a Chicago story and a spot where many West Siders landed: Albany Park.
If you enjoy reading about old school ethnic Chicago, you’ll enjoy this light journey back in time to the latter half of the 20th century. You’ll especially enjoy this book if you remember Albany Park in its glory days, or if like me, you wonder what you missed. While I recognize most places named in this book, they just weren’t the same by the late sixties and early seventies. I’m glad I finally had the chance to experience them in Golde’s novel.
