In an evocative memoir of forbidden love and social divide set on the eve of World War I,
the author describes growing up in a mill town in northern England, in a working-class
neighbourhood in which the Jewish families were strictly divided from the Christian
families on the other side of the street, until his older sister fell for a boy across the street.
Ninety-six-year-old Harry Bernstein emigrated to the United States with his family after
World War I. He has written all his life but started writing The Invisible Wall only after the
death of his wife, Ruby. He has been published in “My Turn” in Newsweek. Bernstein lives
in Brick, New Jersey, where he is working on another book.
