Special Order


Lost photographs, a found memoir, discovered documents, and warm, endearing memories inspired historian Mark Goldman, author of the biography of John Albright, to focus his research on his own family history. In learning about and telling his mother’s story, he discovered he was also telling an important part of the story of New York City during a unique and vibrant era in the mid-1900s. Tillie’s life growing up in mid-century New York City – living on Riverside Drive, playing in Central Park, accompanying her father to work in the Garment District in a Willys Jeep, becoming involved in the Spanish Civil War - reveals a colorful facet of the Jewish immigrant experience through the eyes of a fierce woman. Lushly illustrated with found family photographs, this memoir by award-winning author and historian Mark Goldman is a feast for the eyes and will speak to your soul.

About the Author

An historian, Mark Goldman is the author of City on the Edge, City on the Lake, High Hopes, and the award-winning Albright: The Life and Times of John J. Albright. With Tillie he focuses his trained researcher's eye on his own family. “This is the first book that I have written that is not set in Buffalo. I, like Tillie, am a New Yorker born and bred and it is there that so much of who I am resides. Tillie is as much a tribute to New York City as it is to Tillie.”
