In Growing Up Youngest, Doris Altman Schwartz enchants readers with her tales of growing up as the youngest of eleven children raised by a widowed mother whose husband, the successful portrait painter Solomon Altman, died of pneumonia soon after Doris was born. The culture of London Doris describes during the 1920s, the family's migration to Brooklyn, New York, in the 1930s, and the fortitude of a mother struggling to keep the family together supported only by the meager wages of her older children weave together into a marvelous story.
