Unterzakhn - Leela Corman
Unterzakhn
by
Leela Corman

or Underthings in Yiddish
is a bawdy tale of twin
sisters in New York's lower
East Side at the turn of
the century. One works
for the lady-doctor who
secretly performs abortions
and one works for the woman
who runs the burlesque and
whorehouse.

Tragedy ensues but not
where you'd expect.
