Show Me The Way To Go Home

  Author:   Dorothy Schwartz    
  Publisher:  Bunim & Bannigan

With near total recall, the author recreates what it was like, from a child’s point of view, to be tied to a charming, naïve single mother. The years are 1936 to 1948; the milieu, the New Jersey Oranges. Navigating the hardships of the Great Depression and the mysteries of world conflict, young Dorothy Jane asks one teacher if a war is ever ‘off.’ Show Me The Way To Go Home follows the unanchored, at times rakish, existence of a feckless mother and innocent daughter who rarely spending more than a few seasons at one address. It is a tale of resiliency and courage, of a child’s growing awareness of her predicament, and her gradually achieved maturity.
