About the book:
Stanley Novak is a first generation Polish immigrant who moves to Bakerton and finds work in the booming local mine. The Novaks live on Polish Hill, an area teeming with immigrants from all over Europe, all chasing the American Dream.

Their five children belong to what will someday be known as the Greatest Generation. The eldest, George, is drafted to the Pacific when America joins the war. Dorothy is a fragile and naive girl, who find sit hard to cope with her desk job in Washington. Joyce, fiercely intelligent, must hold the the family together and remains bitterly aware of the life that she could have had. Sandy swans through life with his movie-star looks. And Lucy, the youngest, must find her own path in the shadow of her formidable siblings.
Baker Towers is a beautiful snapshot of a small town-of company houses and union squabbles; the boom and bust of the post-war years; the immigrant neighbourhoods of Swedetown, Little Italy and Polish Hill; the miners, undertakers, soldiers, firemen and families who populate the town and bring it vividly to life.

'An elegant, elegiac multigenerational saga...almost mythic in its ambition, somewhere between Oatees and Updike country, and thoroughly satisfying'. Kirkus Reviews
